Studyng of the sources in the hagiographical works – which are to be individuated in informants/witnesses of the stories – is a main point for a critical-historical approach to this literary genre. This is true also for the Dialogi, a much debated work of Gregory the Great, specially in the light of the great importance of the informants (eyewitnesses or indirect witnesses, coming from ecclesiastical, monastic, secular, educated, popular world) who often gave the subject for Gregory’s narratio miraculorum. The analysis of the sources confirms the hypothesis that the whole gregorian Dialogi are based on an unitary project; moreover, analysis highlights several historical aspects hidden behind the legendary settings of the miracles.
