Overview

From Ireland’s 7th-century St. Abban to Mother Theresa of Calcutta, this inspirational dictionary of saints provides an accessible introduction to the heroes of the Christian Church. Cross-referenced to create a complete picture of the saints’ interconnection, it aspires to provide the most accurate details on their lives, as well as information on feast days, patron saints, symbols, and heresies. Each saint receives a short narrative account that emphasizes the most powerful elements of his or her story; while some events may be more legendary than true, they all have meaning in their own right as examples of how these remarkable individuals have resonated in the community of faith. Anyone interested in religion will find these accounts fascinating.
