Saints

Shortly after the death of Christ the title of saint, in Latin sanctus, was given to the Apostles, Evangelists and other early Christian martyrs and confessors.

In Catholicism, the papacy has claimed the exclusive right of bestowing the title since the 12th century. These days the process of declaring a person to be a saint can be lengthy. One may be considered for sainthood no sooner than five years after death. If research proves the candidate lived a virtuous life then the title of venerable is bestowed. After evidence of at least one miracle has been accepted then the person is beatified and given the title of blessed. Finally, a posthumous miracle ensures canonization and the title of saint.

Orthodox churches have their own processes, called glorification or canonization, for recognizing saints. As such, Orthodox traditions may include saints not venerated by Catholics, and vice versa.
