List of saints

The saints below are listed in alphabetical order by christian name, but if necessary by surname, the place or attribute part of name as well. The "non-historical" column records saints who have been officially declared to have not really existed by a church which formerly recognised the individual as historical.

Note that the churches within the Anglican communion do not officially canonize saints, though a number of traditional saints are often given the title.
