The Bibliotheca Hagiographica Syriaca Electronica (BHSE) is a guide to over 1,000Syriac stories, hymns, and homilies on Christian saints. These texts blossomed alongside the cult of the saints in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages. While traditions in Greek and Latin are well known to scholars, the stories of the Christian saints of the Middle East are only just being discovered. BHSE makes Syriac hagiography available to scholars and the wider public with information about these texts including: authors, opening and closing lines, manuscripts, translations, and bibliography. BHSE is the result of a partnership between Syriaca.org and the Jesuit scholarly society, La société des Bollandistes. BHSE is freely available online. Readers can browse entries online, download the entire publication, and offer editorial revisions at http://syriaca.org/saints
