Overview


A timeless classic every Christian can appreciate, this volume has been hailed as the authority on Christian saints for more than two centuries. In addition to material in Reverend Butler's original text, this edition includes new saints and those whose feasts are special to the United States.
In the text's brief, highly readable entries, readers can find a wealth of knowledge on the lives and deeds of individual saints, as well as their ecclesiastical and historical importance since canonization. Arranged day by day, with cross-indexing for easy reference, the text corresponds to the months of the year and contains entries on saints with feast days in that month.
A valuable aid to devotion and a rich source of historical information, Butler's Lives of the Saints, through its concise biographies, remains a helpful and authoritative reference.
