Sanctity as a Story

Narrative (In)Variants of the Saint


Edited By Halszka Leleń

The book analyzes the changing story-related patterns of constructing the figures of the saint and/or some concepts of sanctity, as recorded in a variety of artistic and historic texts. The book offers systematic insight into multiple transformations and transpositions of the narrative variants, and invariants, of the genre of hagiography that once determined the dissemination of culture. The problem that is tackled is that of identifying some core essentials of the past and contemporary representations of sanctity.
