Oxford Dictionary of Saints
Fifth edition revised
This revised fifth edition includes appendices containing five maps of pilgrimage sites, a list of saints' patronages and iconographical emblems, and a calendar of principal feasts, as well as a new appendix on pilgrimages.
First published in 1978, the Oxford Dictionary of Saints offers more than 1,700 fascinating and informative entries covering the lives, cults, and artistic associations of saints from around the world, from the famous to the obscure, the rich to the poor, and the academic to the uneducated. From all walks of life and from all periods of history and from around the world, the wide varieties of personalities and achievements of the canonized are reflected. An updated introduction explains the steps towards becoming a saint, the processes of beatification and canonization.
New to this edition
- Corrections and updates to the current text, plus new entries on recently canonized saints, including Alphonsa, Marcellin Champagnat, Father Damien de Veuster, and Mary MacKillop
- Additional appendix on pilgrimages
