Cult of Saints in Late Antiquity Database

On 1 November, All Saints Day, Bryan Ward-Perkins, Fellow and Tutor in History, and the team that has been working with him on a major European Research Council project, investigating the origin and early development of the cult of Christian saints, launched the database that is one of the main products of the project.  The launch was held at the Ioannou Centre For Classical and Byzantine Studies.

The database will be progressively populated with more and more information over the coming months, but over a thousand texts, translations and discussions are already available and searchable, giving users a good idea of the richness and functionality of this new research tool.
