Item Description...
Originally published by Bulfinch Press in 1994 in hardcover, ONE HUNDRED SAINTS is still the only version of Butler's long-revered Lives of the Saints that presents saints in all their splendor-in both word and image. The selection reflects contemporary interest and patronage. All the Apostles are featured, as are the Church Fathers (e.g., Augustine, Jerome, Thomas Aquinas). Also included are saints whose lives and works provide fascinating glimpses into their holy lives and the traditions and beliefs that have grown because of them. We see Bernini's sculptural representation of Teresa of Avila in ecstasy; Sebastian's martyrdom as pictured by Titian; and El Greco's penetrating rendering of St. Martin and the Beggar.

More About Bulfinch Press

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Alban Butler's Lives of the Fathers, Martyrs and other Principal Saints was published between 1756 and 1759. Since then the multi-volume work has undergone numerous revisions and updatings, the most recent being in 1990. Since this British cleric was somewhat reticent about promulgating many of the legends and stories commonly attributed to saints today, we have drawn on a more colorful, 20th-century revision for One Hundred Saints.

Outstanding Coffee Table Book on the Saints  Aug 21, 2004
I bought this book from a used book shop and was thoroughly impressed by the beautiful selection of pictures and pieces from Butler's Lives of the Saints. If you are looking for an introduction to the saints, this is well worth the money.
