Gregorio de Tours y la hagiografía del siglo VI. Aproximaciones histórico-teológicas al libro Sobre las virtudes de san Martín.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Bishop Gregory of Tours (†594) wrote eight hagiographical books, four of which were dedicated to the miracles performed by Saint Martin –De uirtutibus sancti Martini episcopi–. This collection of favours, little known in the Spanish-speaking world, represents a pedagogical and moral effort and allows us to understand the pastoral project of this sixth century Gallo-Roman writer. The present work aims to show how the hagiographical work of this learned bishop makes possible the analysis of the historical particularities of an eminently religious society, in which the transmission of the ideals of a discipline of evangelical life and the spread of devotion to Saint Martin are central.
