The Cantieri dell’Agiografia (Hagiography Workshops) aim both at encouraging networking among scholars and at bringing out the most innovative research and methodologies in the field of hagiographical studies. This workshop provides a context in which the participants’ research can be showcased in diachronic and multidisciplinary forms. Participants are encouraged to discuss methodological tools, historical paths, and social and cultural interactions that, over the centuries and up to the present day, have sustained the process of recognition of sanctity, such as cultic practices, places of devotion, and forms of hagiographical communication.

Research groups in the field of hagiographical studies are invited to submit a panel proposal for this 7th edition of the Cantieri dell’Agiografia.

The panel organizer, who will act as contact person with the AISSCA Advisory Board, is responsible for submitting the proposal. Panels are organized according to the following structure:
