For the first time, all the Saints of the liturgical calendar and of popular tradition are richly illustrated in this most unique volume!
Rosa Giorgi has included over 375 Catholic Saints and arranged the book in a 365 day format with up to three Saints on the day each Beatified figure is honored. Readers will enjoy a brief accompanying description of each Saint—including etymology of names, historical background, occupations, cities, and countries of patronage. There are 380 images of these outstanding figures from the history of the Church, ranging from world-famous works of art by such masters as Caravaggio, Rubens, Velázquez, and El Greco to more modern depictions.
Encompassing angels and abbots, mystics and martyrs, priests and prophets, virgins and visionaries, the exquisite Saint portraits in these pages will not only inspire Catholics, but will also fascinate scholars and art historians.Hardcover,5 x 2 x 6.3, 780 pages
