An excellent source of biographical information on the saints... which contains entries for all who have been canonized or beatified by the Church to date... Libraries will want this exceptional book to modernize their reference collections on the saints.
Catholic Library World||..."a comprehensive biographical dictionary" edited by Basil Watkins OSB... if sanctity could be purchased or pondered by pounds and ounces, this book is twice the bargain...
Review for Religious||A useful reference work for anyone who teaches theology or religious studies, for members of the clergy, for monasteries and reliigous houses, and for those interested in Christian history... this is a standard reference work, now brought up to date to reflect more recent developments in the Church and in scholarship.
