Reforming Saints is an investigation of how and why early German humanists were attracted to composing saint's lives in the half century preceding the Reformation. David J. Collins approaches the humanists' writings on their own terms and recaptures the creative energy the humanists brought to the task of revising the legends of the saints. The cult of the saints and Renaissance humanism are two topics that attract considerable scholarly attention. Reforming Saints considers them as studies rarely do - at their intersection.
