2 - 4 weeks availability
This magnificent new publication distinguishes itself from others by its comprehensiveness, and in its coverage of Eastern, as well as Western, saints. The book contains approximately 7,000 Saints and Blesseds. Entries come in strictly alphabetical order of name: where there are numerous saints with the same name (for example John) these are now listed chronologically. The entries include date and place of birth and death as well as family background, education, activity for which the saints is remembered, and whether he/she is a patron saint. In order to be really comprehensive even possibly mythical saints are included - Barbara, Christopher and Katherine of Alexandria, because their stories have been so important in art, literature and popular devotion. This is the most complete and accurate "Dictionary of Saints" available.
Michael Walsh has written or edited over a dozen works on the history of the Church, both ancient and contemporary. He was until recently, Librarian at Heythrop College, University of London, UK.
Extended Introduction; Saints Listed Alphabetically; Appendixes and Indexes.
