'''Hagiography''' is the study of [[saint]]s. It comes from the Greek words ''agios'' and ''graphas'' = "holy writing" or "writing about the holy (ones)".
*A ''hagiography'' refers literally to writings on the subject of such holy persons; and specifically, the [[biography]] of [[ecclesiastic]]al and [[secular]] leaders, [[canonize]]d persons publicly glorified (canonized) by the Christian Church.
*''Hagiology'', by contrast, is the study of saints collectively, without focusing on the life of an individual saint.
