Product Description

Translated from the Italian! In the Middle Ages, peasants could recognize saints by their symbols; today even the college-educated can't. The Lanzis have done us an invaluable service with their extensively researched entries, which document important emblems and motifs and are coupled with 265 color images. 240 pages, hardcover. Liturgical Press.
