Agioi (or rather Hagioi, ςΑγιοι, saints) was one of the common appellations of Christians, and current among them at the date of the apostolical epistles. Subsequently it was used as one of the names of the baptized or faithful, in contradistinction to the catechumens. We also find this word and the superlative ἁγιώτατοι employed as epithets of bishops. SEE SAINT.
