This volume, second in the 'Colloquia' series, includes an introduction and fifteen papers selected from those presented at the Conference co-organized in Porec (Croatia) by Hagiotheca and the International Hagiography Society in May 2010. The authors explore the role of late antique and medieval bishops in promoting the cult of saints, as well as the literary representations of bishop-saints.

The Centre for Mediaeval Studies 'Leonard Boyle' (www.centreleonardboyle.com) offers academic and professional books on hagiography and history of Late Antiquity. Specifically, as opposed to a parochial vision of the monk and scholar, the Centre proposes a study of Cassiodorus in the context of contemporary church controversies and Byzantine history.
