“The Life of The Servant of God Regina Protmann” As an Example of Post-Trent Hagiography
Languages of publication
The aim of the article is to present "The Life of the Servant of God Regina Protmann" (1623) as an example of Post-Trent hagiography. Its main heroine is the foundress of the Congregation of Saint Catherine, Virgin and Martyr (died 1613). The author’s goal is to construct a role model acceptable to contemporary readers. He relies on the authority of the Scripture, personal accounts of the meetings with the Blessed and her own writings. Following the principles of the new hagiography, he does not insert miracles or other fantastic motives to make his work more credible. They are replaced by detailed descriptions of Regina’s actual deeds and virtues.
