Summary
Portrays more than 375 Catholic saints, arranged by the days of the year on which each 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. Author 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 patronage. Encompassing angels and abbots, mystics and martyrs, priests and prophets, virgins and visionaries, the portraits in these pages will inspire Catholics and fascinate scholars and art historians.--From publisher description
