A Very Good Question! Who are the saints of the holy bible?


Who are the biblical saints?  I found some online references listing the saints of the bible ... I haven't doubled checked all of them yet, but they look credible - they are very nice lists (they are not just Catholic saints, but rather biblical saints).

All Saints' and Souls' Days - November 1st and 2nd

"The Christian holiday of All Saints' Day falls on 1 November, followed by All Souls' Day on 2 November, and is currently a Solemnity in the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church, a Festival in the Lutheran Churches, as well as a Principal Feast of the Anglican Communion." ~ Wikipedia

The Predella of the San Domenico Altarpiece by Fra Angelico is most often shown as a cropped piece of religious art featuring an all saints' concept - here is the art work as a whole as found on Wikimedia Commons




The Day of the Dead by William-Adolphe Bouguereau from Wikimedia Commons ... it is an autumn memorial day in November that you may associate with the spring memorial day in May

What is hagiography?

·       Online Oxford Dictionary: “the writing of the lives of saints; biography that idealizes its subject”

·       Online Merrium-Webster Dictionary: “The combining form -graphy comes from Greek graphein, meaning to write.  Hagio- comes from a Greek word that means saintly or holy.  This origin is seen in Hagiographa, the Greek designation of the Ketuvim, the third division of the Hebrew Bible.”

What is hagiography in Frostburg, Maryland?

·       “… reading and studying hagiography around the world from the location of Frostburg, Maryland in the form of research and education”

... a summer of pandemic and violence as we read and study hagiography

Topic: Roman History (as it pertains to hagiography) 

I took a break from reading 'City of God' by Saint Augustine to have time for my online theology class, and I noticed that today was the feast day of the First Martyrs of the Church of Rome, which occured about 350 years before Saint Augustine was defending Rome from pagans and writing about it in his book called 'City of God':
