Oxford Dictionary of Saints, 5th Edition by David Hugh Farmer
This is far more than a dry hagiographical account of the lives of saints. This entertaining and authoritative dictionary breathes life into its subjects and is as brow sable as it is informative. Revised edition of this highly-acclaimed classic. Over 1,700 fully-referenced entries. Wide coverage of saints from all eras and backgrounds: from rich to poor, famous to obscure, from academics to the uneducated. Covers recently canonized saints. Featuring maps showing European pilgrimage sites, a calendar of principal feasts, and a new appendix on pilgrimages.
