THE SAINTS A Concise Biographical Dictionary

The work of over fifty contributors -- theologians, Bible scholars, historians, scientists, novelists, psychiatrists -- combines to make this volume a divergent, varying summary of 2,223 saints. Compiled from the viewpoint of information, not edification, space has been accorded on the basis of various factors -- political importance, theological reference, historical and social interest -- excluding hagiographic reliance on legends of dubious origins. Imprimatur.
