Imperial Sainthood is an honour bestowed upon an individual by the Ecclesiarchy for acts of great faith and piousness towards the Imperial Cult. It is usually bestowed posthumously, but sometimes bestowed upon a living person (see Living Saint).

Besides this list, the loyalist Primarchs are considered Imperial Saints. Macharius's generals during the Macharian Crusade are considered "apostles" or Imperial Saints.
