Summary/Abstract: ON THE HISTORY OF THE CRITICAL LATIN HAGIOGRAPHY STILYANA BATALOVA (SOFIA) (Summary) Although in contemporary Bulgarian studies medieval Byzantine, Latin and Slavic hagiographic works are subject of various publications, Latin hagiography and hagiology have never been presented to the Bulgarian scholarly community in their entirety and interdependence. In this paper two significant topics are surveyed. Firstly, special attention is paid on the first investigators’ undoubted contribution to the research and publication of the hagiographic documents both in Greek and in Latin. Secondly, stressing on the necessity of considering every single literary work in its context, the author presents the variety of hagiographic sources and the main methods of hagiographic research.
