The theologians of the Holy Office recommend reading the following to all the faithful who wish to file a hagiography..
Everyone is allowed to write a Hagiography of those that have passed away. As a matter of fact, writing one is a personal action and it is not correct to count on the Church to write a Hagiography of every local religious active person in the world. So I ask and support you if you would write one.

Once you have written the Hagiography it needs to be validated by the Congregation of the Holy Office the congregation responsible for the holy scripture.

In this text you can read the procedure of how to write a Hagiography and how to get it recognized by the Church.

What should you find in a hagiography ?
Hagiography is a text about the life of a blessed or a saint. This life should be an example to all the faithful of the Aristotelian Church. The character can be a martyr, a sage, a theologian, a benefactor of mankind, a proselyte ... You can let your imagination run wild as long as the individual is exemplary, with a contribution to Aristotelian-ism.

Besides the saint's life itself, hagiography can contain other elements:
  • dialogues
  • theological writings (if you really know the Dogma)
  • comments from other characters
  • sayings
  • prints (avatars for old character played)
  • description of any local cult

Blessed or Saint ?
The difference is not very complicated to understand. A exemplary person is a blessed person for the Universal Roman and Aristotelian Church. Validation of his hagiography can only be done by the Holy Office. A saint is blessed person who has had a major impact on the Universal Roman and Aristotelian Church. His hagiography is validated by the Curia.

Specifically, the text will first go through the beatification, at the Holy Office, followed by the canonization in the Curia. As the author of the text, you do not have to worry. Just write the best hagiography ever and the officials of the Holy Office will take care of the rest.

What should you pay attention to ?
The following tips & tricks are things you should consider while writing a hagiography. This should aid you in your work:
  • Take care of your spelling. The final text must be free of errors.

  • Place the person well in space and in time. This will be especially useful to avoid confusion with others of the same name.
  • The individual must be deceased. Be sure to describe how he died.
  • The text should not be too long. Its length should normally be proportional to the importance of character in the history of the Church.
  • Make sure your text conforms to the Aristotelian dogma.
  • Combine it with items such as relics, maxims of significant words or a local cult.
  • Be careful with miracles. Do not describe the person more miraculous than he/she was.
  • A blessed or a saint is not necessarily a perfect being. He may have its minor flaws, the hagiography may include darker passages. We must not fall into the "Care Bears" style.

How does it work?
Once you belief your hagiography is ready, the following procedure should be completed:
  1. Introduce yourself and your text in the antechamber.
  2. The theologians will move your text in the scriptorium to criticize (*) and propose changes.
  3. When it is ready, your text will be submitted to a vote of the Cenacle (= all the theologians).
  4. If passed, your hagiography is validated and the character becomes "blessed". Otherwise, return to the starting point or final abandonment of the project.
  5. The hagiography of Blessed is then subjected to the Curia, who decides whether he deserves to be a saint.

(*) criticize = read text and comment noting the positive and negative points. Do not believe the theologians are there to "break" systematically all texts go. Their job is to ensure that you have consistent and interesting texts.
