Hagiography Genre of literature whose aims were the veneration of the saint and the creation of an ideal of Christian behavior as well as documentation and entertainment. As a protrayal of historical personages, hagiography overlaps with historiography, conveying historical information, using chronicles as sources, and, in turn, serving as a source for chronicles; as an edifying genre, hagiography may bear resemblance to the Sermon. Three major types of hagiography already existed in the early centuries of the Roman empire: Martyrion, the account of a martyr's trial and execution; Vita, a saint's biography; and Apophthegmata Patrum, a collection of wise sayings of hermits. Probably by the 7th c. the description of posthumous Miracles was established as a separate genre. See Hagiography in Beta maṣāḥǝft
