A HANDLIST OF ANGLO-LATIN HAGIOGRAPHY
THROUGH THE EARLY TWELFTH CENTURY (FROM THEODORE OF TARSUS TO WILLIAM OF MALMESBURY)
Thomas N. HallSouth Carolina
The following list originated as a handout developed for a seminar on Anglo-Saxon Hagiography taught at the University of Notre Dame in Spring 2010. Its aim is to supply a provisional inventory, for classroom purposes, of all major known works of Latin hagiography (primarily saints' Lives and miracle collections but also select sermons, hymns, and other texts that have saints as their subjects) written in Britain or by native British authors or by authors writing anywhere about British saints, from the time of Archbishop Theodore (602–690) to William of Malmesbury (ca. 1090–ca. 1143). The objective here is not to provide exhaustive bibliographical coverage for every single text and author but to offer a basic orientation to the corpus with the hope of stimulating further work.
