Abstract:

"This is a unique publication. While there are many dictionaries of saints, none have attempted to list, in one alphabetical sequence, the many saints revered in the Churches of the East, among the Copts, for example, or in Ethiopia, in Russia or in Greece or in Syria and Armenia, as well as those known in the Western Church." "While entries are kept short, each contains, wherever possible, details of the birth, life and death of the saint (or blessed), the feast day on which the saint is celebrated and the particular tradition to which each belongs wherever he or she is not commemorated in the universal church." "Some 7,000 saints are listed, including a few who are mythical, but whose legendary lives have played an important part in Christian tradition, depicted in art or literature, or are important for popular devotion."--Jacket.
