'The second volume of the Companion unquestionably provides a further significant and long-overdue contribution in this field which will be of particular and lasting value to specialist students of Byzantium but will also be of use to those interested in the broader study of (medieval) hagiography, religion, and literature.' Speculum ... a rich collection that offers a thorough introduction to the study of Byzantine hagiographical writing, both in its treatment of the texts themselves and by synthesizing current scholarly discourse on this immensely significant body of literature. Medieval Review 'Warm congratulations are owed to the editor, Professor Stephanos Efthymiadis, for presenting to modern scholarship a study important not only to scholars of Byzantine Studies, but also to scholars interested in theology, (monastic) literature, and social history. Given the major names of the contributors and the well-written content, there is no doubt that this companion will be at the summit of scholarship for some time to come, as it condenses all the previous scholarship. Every university or research library should have a copy.' Journal of Theological Studies
