Heiligenverehrung und Namengebung
[The Influence of the Veneration of Saints on Naming]
Ed. by Dräger, Kathrin / Fahlbusch, Fabian / Nübling, Damaris
Aims and Scope
From the Middle Ages until today, the names of saints have been included in all areas of naming. The names of saints are present to differing extents in various classes of names, but there has been little previous research on this phenomenon. This volume is a comprehensive examination of the veneration of saints in different areas of onomastics, thereby providing new impetus for cultural historical research.
