Product Description

The Cult of the Saints expanded rapidly in the fourth century---with Chrysostom's homilies serving as important witnesses to its growth. Originally focused on those who died confessing the faith, whether at the hands of Romans, Jews, or others, the cult came to embody public veneration of the departed and their related relics.
