We ought to teach ancient and medieval hagiography (the lives of the saints) because it was a primary genre for Christians until the Enlightenment. But when we do (even if we only stick to Eusebius and Bede for history) we constantly run across accounts of the miraculous. We ought to model for our students a Christian perspective on the “supernatural” that is different from the rationalist unbelief all around us, faithful to historic Christian thought, and anchored in the Resurrection of Christ, the new creation He has ushered in, and the kingdom of God for which we’re supposed to be helping to shape our students.
