Summary/Abstract: This paper shows that the saints’ entries in pre-fifteenth-century medieval Bulgarian calendars of saints cannot serve as evidence of cults of saints in Bulgaria, because they are composed not from vitae or liturgical texts, but instead from a combination of earlier calendar sources. The paper illustrates this with examples of co-occurring saints in related Bulgarian calendars who do not have vitae in the Slavic tradition.
