Hagiography Database

A searchable database of Greek saints’ lives from the eighth to the tenth century.

Hagiography Database

Welcome to the online version of the Dumbarton Oaks Hagiography Database, originally released in 1998 as a set of floppy disks. We are pleased to make the database available in a much more accessible and user-friendly format, and free of charge, through the Dumbarton Oaks website. The database has two sections: the introduction which contains general information about the project, and bio- bibliographical introductions to each of the saints of the 8th–10th centuries included in the project; and the database itself which in turn is divided into three sections, the Saints' list, the author' list, and the search citations. The Greek texts that we have been permitted to reproduce may be accessed either in their entirety through the Saints' list or in sections through the search citations.
