    Abstract:
    Taking the late ninth-century Breton Gesta Sactorum Rotonensium as a starting point, this article aims to demonstrate that there is more to the biblical quotations and allusions employed by early medieval hagiographers than initially meets the eye. By juxtaposing the stories these quotations are in with their 'original' biblical context, as wellas with patristic comrnentaries that were en vogue at the time, an attempt is made to show that the use of the Bible was more than merely topical and actually steered the interpretation of the narrative by its intended audience.
