I was wrong, "Sharp" Abiding Book of GL is in Revealed Mythologies p.16. Peter's answer is from MSE p.42.

Currently HQ rulebook is not at my hand, but I suppose Jamie is right.

Hmm, then saints have existed since the Death came. I am not sure the

In most simple game term, I suppose saints are entities who give spells to malkioni player characters (but not wizards). :)
Many saints are good for player characters for game and variety of spells. But not good for me and Theoblanc. :)

Maybe, we must think more about the source of Wizardry magic, it is from Essence Plane, but I am not sure the conduit is spoken syllables, magic book (scripture, formulary, grimoire or so), or written characters (runes?).
