If you read Christina Moss' "The Myth of Persecution" she makes a great case for most of this saint horseshit being an economic issue. Saints and relics and the bullshit associated with them were important to separate pilgrims from their money.

Oddly, it reached the point where the more gory the saint's death the better.
