~ Pre-Nineteenth Century ~


In response to numerous requests from our visitors, the members of the Hagiography Circle have decided to include models of holiness who died before the nineteenth century. However, the individuals or groups listed in the following links would fall under one of the following four categories:

  • Those who have been beatified or canonized from the beginning of the papacy of Pope Paul VI (June 1963); 

  • Those whose causes have received the “decree on heroic virtues” since the establishment of the Congregation of Rites in 1594 but still have not been beatified;

  • Those whose causes have been given a nihil obstat by the Congregation for the Causes of Saints since Divinus Perfectionis Magister was promulgated (February 1983); and,

  • Those whose beatification or canonization processes continue to be supported actively by an actor.
