Hagiography is a biographical study of the life of one or more saints, especially one that idolises the individual/s. Their content sometimes needs to be taken with a grain of salt, but they can also (if you can determine the period in which they were written) give useful clues as to how people of that time thought people of the saint's time ought to have been living.
