Publisher Comments:

For all the times when you need someone to call on — for help, inspiration, or celebration — this authoritative, readable, and entertaining book will tell you which saint you can invoke for the occasion. Whether you're looking for love, hoping for success at work, or needing to get well soon, Saints can help you find the answer to your prayers.

The perfect gift book for anyone interested in history or legend, religion or selfhelp, this unique reference book of more than 150 saints is the first to group them by their patronages and specialties and to illustrate their relevance to the modern world. Saints contains a wealth of invaluable information about the lives of early and contemporary saints and answers many questions, including: Why is Saint Christopher invoked by travelers? Why is Saint Elmo's fire so called? And why is Saint Jude the patron saint of lost causes?

From the wealth of artistic material that saints have inspired throughout the ages in painting, stained glass, and photography, more than 170 beautiful full-color and black-and-white photographs have been chosen to illustrate this gloriously rich celebration of saints. With special spreads focusing on the best-known and most intriguing saints, shrines and pilgrimage sites shown in their modern context, a calendar of feast days, an illustrated index of saints, and an alphabetical list of patronages and specialties, this comprehensive survey will be sure to intrigue, enlighten, and delight all who sense a saintly presence in their lives.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 179) and indexes.
