From the famous to the obscure, this new edition of the immensely popular Oxford Dictionary of Saints provides concise, readable accounts of the lives of over 1,300 saints, more than any similar guide. In addition to the biographical sketches, information on the cults and artistic associations of particular saints is also given full coverage.
Fully revised and updated for this new edition, this handy resource also includes new entries on a number of recently canonized saints as well as a new appendix on patronages. The inclusion of more saints from Europe confirms the dictionary's reputation as the standard one-volume work available in English. A book to be dipped into again and again, The Oxford Dictionary of Saints will intrigue anyone who delights in stories of the marvelous, the uncanny, and the bizarre.
