WHAT DOES HAGIOGRAPHICAL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

hagiographical

Hagiography

A hagiography /ˌhæɡiˈɒɡrəfi/ is a biography of a saint or an ecclesiastical leader. Christian hagiographies focus on the lives, and notably the miracles of men and women canonized by the Roman Catholic church, the Anglican Communion, the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Oriental Orthodox churches, and the Church of the East. Other religions such as Buddhism, Islam and Sikhism also create and maintain hagiographical texts concerning saints, gurus and other individuals believed to be imbued with sacred power. Hagiographic works, particularly those of the Middle Ages, can often incorporate a valuable record of institutional and local history, and evidence of popular cults, customs, and traditions. However, when referring to modern, non-ecclesiastical works, the term "hagiography" is often used as a pejorative reference to biographies and histories whose authors are perceived to be uncritical or reverential to their subject.
