To my help I have used discource analysis as Mats Börjesson interpreting it and as my theoretical frame I have used the doctrine of virtues by Saint Thomas Aquinas. My analysis is following the life of the saints from their childhoods to their deaths through three subheadings with different themes. My conclusion is that this three hagiographies are, with only small differences, very similiar to each other. They are following the virtues on the same way. They are representing the average hagiography during the whole Middle Ages. (Less)
