Product Description

San Antonio, St. Patrick, St. Paul, even Santa Claus--these are just a few of the many saint names familiar to everybody. Yet how many of us know the stories behind the saints whose names and images surround us? In this handy guide Edward and Lorna Mornin combine informed descriptions of more than 130 popular saints with fascinating images from both high and low art collected over decades of travel. They go beyond familiar portrayals to lesser-known but enlightening images of famous saints, not only in traditional art but also in such modest media as prayer and playing cards, coats of arm, commercial signs, and the like. Attractive, practical, and brimming with intriguing information, this book will be an invaluable field guide for everyone, even the most seasoned "saint spotter."
