Of the thousands of saints created by the Catholic Church many have a special relevance to British history, either through popular acceptance and worship or because of their direct involvement in the development of Christianity in the British Isles.This book tells the life stories of the more familiar saints, the associated folklore, the patronage, the emblems, the place names, the shrines and the festivals. There is a calendar of saints' days.
