Description

The stories of great figures in Christianity still inspire today. Joyce Denham tells the tales of 14 major figures, from Bible times to the late Middle Ages. For each saint, she gives a short historical introduction, and then retells one significant episode in their life, which shines a light on the work and wisdom for which they were most loved and remembered. Where appropriate, she also includes a saying or prayer attributed to the saint. The book ends with a short section giving more information about each saint, with the dates of the Feast Days which celebrate each of their lives. From the Bible: Mary, John the Baptist, Peter, Mary Magdalene, Stephen, Paul. From Christian history (3rd to 14th century): Lawrence (Italy), Martin of Tours (France), Genevieve (France), Columba (Ireland/Scotland), Bathild (England/France), Francis of Assisi, Elizabeth of Portugal, Bridget (Sweden).show more
