Abstract

So far, researches on the production of pre-Gregorian hagiography are organised according to cultural areas, and tend to underline specificities of each one (i.e. Visigothic, Frankish, Irish,Anglo-Saxon, Breton hagiography etc). It could be interesting to overstep these frontiers in order to go to the root of resemblances and differences in the process of writing saints’ lives. As a first step, scholars specialised in different areas will try to set a status questionis, and to suggest ways toward further comparative studies.
