A Book of Saints PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A Book of Saints free pdf This is an anthology of saints with classic prose complemented by over 85 works of art by world-famous artists. Every picture tells the story and inner beauty of a saint. It covers saints from the Apostles and martyrs of the 1st century AD through to the present day. It includes the much-loved saints such as St Peter, St Mary Magdalene and St Bernadette, as well as those who are less familiar including St Veronica and St Rock. It is an inspirational book for all those who have been touched in any way by the example of the saints. Art is taken from the medieval masters, the Renaissance and the Pre-Raphelite period. It is a charming book, with a beautiful gallery of portraits, that celebrates the power and glory of the saints. Within this book you will find some of the stories of our most beloved saints, people whose lives have touched ours through their heroism, asceticism, devotion and faith. Here are revealed many of the best-loved and also lesser-known saints: we see the courage and strength of the martyrs, St Catherine, St Joan of Arc and many others- the spiritual leaders St Benedict and St Ignatius of Loyola, who have inspired millions- and the gentle monks St Francis and St Martin of Tours, who bought help to the poor and suffering. Sometimes it is difficult to tell where fact ends and legend begins, as in the story of St George and the dragon, or St Christopher and the Christ child. Whether or not the stories are unassailably true, they have been told and retold over the centuries, comforting, inspiring, enlightening and intriguing people all round the world.
