Good Reference Bood For Catholic Art Lovers Dec 15 2009
By M. Hill - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a beautifully illustrated reference book. It was exactly what I was expecting by seeing it on Amazon. Anyone, like me, who loves Renaissance art, will enjoy reading up on the Catholic Saints. However, this being a recently written reference book, there are also modern saints covered, such as Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

Those who are searching for a reference book covering a larger number of saints, I would recommend "Our Sunday Visitor's Encyclopedia of Saints" Our Sunday Visitor's Encyclopedia of Saints This product briefly covers about 10,000 saints.

Sainthood never looked so sexy! April 14 2010
By A. Zahnd - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'll keep this short and sweet. Practically anything you want to know about saints (modern-day and days-of-old) is packed into this book. From The Archangel Michael to Mother Teresa, it's all here. The art brings you right to each individual saints era. It stangely provides a sense of nostalgia...

My Ebert and Roeper are pointed to the sky.

Impressive book: good introduction to various topics, great images April 19 2013
By Craig B. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book has great summaries on various Saint related topics. It begins with detailed description on what is a Saint, canonization process, holy relics; important feast days, etc. Throughout the book there are occasional pages dedicated to other topics: The stigmata, Apostles, child saints, religious orders, incorruptibles, etc. Great facts associated to each individual Saint listed in the Directory. It is not a comprehensive list of Saints, but the presentation is impressive. My 14 year old daughter could not put it down for two weeks.

By Patzi Shea - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a great book for anyone wanting to learn more about our beloved Saints.
The illustrations are wonderful the kind of art you would see if you visited Rome. We keep it handy and find we both read it weekly. Its something you can pick up whether you have 5 minutes or an hour. It is very captivating.
