Abstract

Starting from the 4th c., spectacular cases of famous and unknown poisoned persons that had been miraculously healed or saved by saints are described. Moreover, we can find other famous cases in which God saves saints’ lives who had been poisoned. This last topic, that will be very common in the Medieval hagiography, was often used also for adding biographical notes in those saints’ lives of which biography was fragmentary or not so much relavant.
