As beautiful as it is inspirational, An Illustrated History of Saints and Sainthood is a fascinating guide to the history of sainthood, exploring martyrdom, patronage, miracles, feast days, relics, pilgrimages, canonization, and the stunning artwork that has so reverently depicted the lives of holy individuals since the advent of Christianity. You will learn about the patron saints for various professions (from accountants to winemakers), the patron saints for nations (America's is St. Mary the Virgin), and twentiethcentury martyrs and heroes who have not been canonized, but whose works are recognized as extraordinary (German pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who was murdered by Nazis in 1945, for example). Additionally, An Illustrated History of Saints and Sainthood reveals the individual life stories of many of the most called-upon saints as a way to examine the history of the Christian Church and the many manifestations of faith.
