Description
This beautifully illustrated exploration of the evolving role of saints and sainthood in the Christian church recounts the lives of these influential figures from the Old Testament to the present day. Here the author of The Story of Mary, The Messiah: An Illustrated Biography of Jesus Christ, and Women of the Bible demystifies the notions of sainthood, martyrdom, beatification, and canonization, placing the role of saints into a wide historical and social context and examining changing attitudes toward saints over the centuries. The book is illuminated by reproductions of art from the 14th through the 19th centuries, including works by Hieronymus Bosch, Fra Angelico, and Caravaggio, up to 16 1/2 x 10 3/4 inches.
