The 25th anniversary of the Leeds International Medieval Congress offers a welcome opportunity to look back on its impact on the broad and interdisciplinary field of hagiographical research. We will do so throughout a series of three sessions which will look on the one hand on the state of art. The papers of sessions I and II will in this sense look on a series of European countries and regions as importants pols of hagiographical, such as France, Italy, Germany, Scandinavia, or Eastern Europe. On the other hand, the papers in sessions III will focus on the links between these achievements and offer some perspectives on future hagiographical research with a special emphasis on the materiality of the cult of saints and the links between hagiography and liturgy.
