More About Saints by Rosa Giorgi
 
 
 
Overview
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.
