Abstract: The Greek hagiographic dossier concerning Maximus the Confessor (ca. 580-662) consists of a number of different passiones and vitae, which all present basically the same information, frequently worded in similar, if not identical way. In the present article an attempt is made to explain this situation by establishing the relationships between these texts. For the first time the passiones in the Synaxarium Constantinopolitanum and in Patmiacus 266 are taken into consideration. Moreover, the conclusions for the most famous vita (BHG 1234) may prove to be important for our knowledge of Maximus' course of life.
