2008 Catholic Press Association Award Winner!
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 are placed in alphabetical order according to 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 saint is remembered, and whether he/she is a patron saint.

In order to be comprehensive, even possibly mythical saints are includedG��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.

One of the great values of this book for Western readers is that it exposes them to a whole pantheon of Eastern saints, many of whom are never mentioned in more `western' books of the saints.
