Saints are an integral part of Catholic and Orthodox worship. But while modern saints, like the canonized popes John XXIII and John Paul II, have well-documented biographies, that's not always the case. Before critical analysis of the saint's life, people depended on legends, myths, and tradition for their biographies, also known as hagiographies. These sources are highly unreliable. Some early hagiographies may have an historical core, but they can't came to truly get to the bottom of the story.

So, want to know which beloved saints probably never existed? Then check out the following gallery.
