Dumbarton Oaks Hagiography Database

Visit Website

This is the online version of the Dumbarton Oaks Hagiography Database, originally released in 1998 as a set of floppy disks. The database has two sections: the introduction (containing general information about the project, and biographical and bibliographical introductions to each of the saints of the 8th–10th centuries); and the database itself which in turn is divided into three sections (Saints’ list; Authors’ list; search citations). The Greek texts may be accessed through the Saints’ list (entire texts) or through citations (partial texts). Please note that the interface for this database is under development.
