chronological list of saints in the 8th century

So, do you know what a saint is? A saint is a person who was really good and did amazing things for other people and for God.

Now, in the 8th century, which is a very long time ago, there were many people who were so good and kind that they were made into saints by the Catholic Church.

The Catholic Church made a list of all these saints and they put them in order from the earliest ones to the ones that happened most recently. That list is called a chronological list.

So, imagine you have a list of all the saints who lived in the 8th century, which was a time when a lot of amazing things were happening in the world. This list would have all the names of these good and kind people who did wonderful things.

Now, this list would be in order by when each person lived and did their amazing things. So, the very first saint on the list would be the one who lived the earliest in the 8th century and the very last saint on the list would be the one who lived the latest in the 8th century.

So, that's a chronological list of saints in the 8th century – a list of all the amazing people who were made saints during that time, in order from the earliest ones to the ones that happened most recently.
