HISTORY of Christian Theology

Is a term used in the New Testament for Christian believers. In Roman Catholicism it refers to officially canonized, deceased holy men and women who can intercede with God on behalf of ordinary men and women and whose ascension to heaven has been confirmed by miracles performed by them after they had died. Protestants reject the notion that saints can intercede on behalf of humans, but some Protestant traditions use this term to refer to the members of their own tradition.
