THE SANCTITY OF THE LEADERS
Holy Kings, Princes, Bishops, and Abbots from Central Europe (11th to 13th Centuries)

SANCTITAS PRINCIPUM
Sancti Reges, Duces, Episcopi et Abbates Europae Centralis (Saec. XI-XIII)

 

Edited and introductory essay by Gábor Klaniczay, University Professor of Medieval Studies at the Central European University, Permanent Fellow of Collegium Budapest
Translated and annotated by János M. Bak, Nóra Berend, Cristian Gaşpar and Marina Miladinov

The latest title in the Central European Medieval Texts series contains lives of saints in the latest critical edition of the Latin original and their first English translation. In the 11th-13th centuries in the newly christianized countries (Bohemia, Poland, Hungary and Dalmatia) political leaders dominated the list of newly canonized saints, as opposed to the pious proselytizers of the previous period. (The hagiographical narratives of the latter were published in the preceding volume of the series.) Prefaces to each “vita” discuss the textual tradition. In an appendix the extensive hagiographical literature of the saints is being critically surveyed.
