Publishers Description
This richly illustrated, unique volume portrays more than 375 Catholic saints, arranged by the days of the year on which each beatified figure is honored. The images range from world-famous works of art by such masters as Caravaggio, Rubens, Velazquez, and El Greco to more modern and lesser-known depictions. Rosa Giorgi has chosen up to three saints for each day of the year and has composed a brief accompanying description of each -- including etymology of names, historical background, and occupations, cities, and countries of patronage.
Encompassing angels and abbots, mystics and martyrs, priests and prophets, virgins and visionaries, the exquisite saint portraits in these pages will not only inspire Catholics -- making this an ideal confirmation or Christmas gift -- but will also fascinate scholars and art historians.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Saints A Year in Faith and Art  May 26, 2008
As a Catholic School librarian, I highly recommend this
book. One of the very delightful aspects of this book is
it's beautiful physical appearance. It is small in size,
remanisant of medieval hand printed books. The smooth
paper and gilt cover add to it's appeal. There is a brief
description of each saint with an accompanying picture
on the opposite page. The old masters art work is
lovely. However, some of the pictures are graphic and
may not be for very young children.
 
Stunning  May 6, 2008
I bought this book for my son as he received First Communion. He has consulted it almost every day since, reporting to the rest of the family on the saint featured. Every page turn has a brief story of the saint of the day on one side and a stunning artwork depicting a scene from the saint's life on the other.

One word of caution: martyrdom is not for the faint of heart. Some of the artistic renditions are quite graphic, even explicit, as in the case of Saint Agatha, who apparently had her breasts ripped out with pincers.
 
Great Book of Saints!  Apr 28, 2008
This is an amazing little book of saints. Designed for a "saint a day", it sometimes has two saints per day, but what really stands out is the absolutely beautiful artwork from medieval to modern times. Although the book is small, and hence the pictures also small, they are so sharp and beautiful that their size won't matter. The lives of each saint, being limited to a page or a page and a half, are only overviews, but good for a brief reading on a daily basis. No large time commitment here.
 
Daily Encounters Enriched by the Saints  Jul 26, 2007
The book offers a daily review of a saint or blessed within the Catholic faith. An overview of their life and who they are patron saints of is included. What I enjoyed most was learning the Saints name origin and what it means. Each review is only 1 large paragraph and a picture is included. What a wonderful way to start or end your daily prayers!
 
Great Inspiring Heroes  Jan 5, 2007
As a Catholic priest for over 30 years, I am a lover of spiritual books and stories of role models of the faith. SAINTS: A YEAR in FAITH and ART is just such a book! In addition to the brief paragraphs about each saint, the art work presented relating to the saint is itself worth moments of reflection. If you want more knowledge of a saint, I suggest ALL SAINTS by Robert Ellsberg. If you want a succint understanding of a saint, this is your book! The cover, the daily portrayals and the art work all are worth this price!
PS: I bought several copies and gave them to my Staff for Christmas gifts. They loved it!
