Overview

*Includes Dozens of Paintings of the Saints by Renowned Christian Artists
*Includes Table of Contents

Alban Butler (1710–1773) was an English Roman Catholic priest who wrote about religious leaders in the Catholic Church. His work culminated with The Lives of the Saints, commonly referred to as "Butler's Lives,” which took him 30 years of studying to accomplish. It is considered by many to be the most comprehensive collection of biographies on church leaders over the centuries, an amazing labor of devotion and love that is crucial to understanding Christianity.

Paintings of the saints by artists such as El Greco, Andrea Sacchi, Jacopino del Conte, Lorenzo Lotto, Jose de Ribera and more are included.

Modern editions of Butler’s Lives, including this one, are broken down by the month that each saint’s feast day falls within. This is an abridged version.

This book actually DOES have pictures. The sample omits them, but the actual book has them. But even without the pictures, the book would be worth every penny. Alban Butler is a good author with a lot of knowledge about the saints; he is what makes this book the best saint book of all time.

The book gives a thumbnail sketch of the lives of many of the old-time saints. I read about a few each night for devotional purposes.

But don't buy it for the pictures like the other person said, because there are none aside from the cover. The dates are not quite the same as on my traditional calendars, which might be because of leap year or might be because of the new order. But I bought this version because the first review said lots of pictures and I wish I had known the truth before I paid.
