Here, arranged according to their special days throughout the year, are saints across the centuries and from every walk of life--farm laborers, princes, monks, nuns, soldiers, martyrs, housewives, poets. On almost every page, inspirational sayings illustrate the courage, humor, and wisdom of those who put their religious commitment before everything else. Lavish illustrations--with more than 300 paintings, many in color--form a resplendent gallery of portraits spanning 2,000 years of art.
