Early hagiological practice had much in common with that of Lucca, but following the liturgical reforms of 1310, Florence consciously aligned itself with Roman practice.
Lastly, some of the local narratives repeatedly invoked in the KS--the stories of the hunter-saint Kannappa of Kalahasti, and of Siriyala and Sankhya Tonda (Tamil Cakkiya Nayanar)--are part of the Saiva hagiological repertoire of the entire south Indian region, and are popular already in the bhakti poems of the Saiva Nayanar saints who lived in the Tamil area in the seventh and eighth centuries.
