A comprehensive biographical dictionary of saints canonized by the Roman Catholic Church, it names over 10,000 saints, including all modern ones, with significant information about their lives and achievements.
This is the first comprehensive dictionary of saints in any language for seventy years. The last edition of this book, published in 1970, included very few entries for those recently beatified and canonized and almost none for those honored by Pope John Paul II. Unlike other books of saints which are selective, this one is rigorously comprehensive and historically objective.
