  • A vivid, analytical account of an amazing array of men and women linked by a common bond-sainthood. These individuals led exciting, extraordinary lives throughout history and across the globe, responding to events in their time in different ways-as warriors, teachers, mystics, martyrs, and miracle workers. Richly illustrated, this is a visual feast from Renaissance and Medieval manuscripts, mosaics, glorious paintings, sculptures, icons, keepsakes, and contemporary cinema clips that explore and reveal the significance of saints.
