Description

*Illustrated with Paintings of the Saints by Renowned Christian Artists
*Includes Table of Contents

Alban Butler (1710–1773) was an English Roman Catholic priest who wrote about religious leaders in the Catholic Church. His work culminated with The Lives of the Saints, commonly referred to as "Butler's Lives,” which took him 30 years of studying to accomplish. It is considered by many to be the most comprehensive collection of biographies on church leaders over the centuries, an amazing labor of devotion and love that is crucial to understanding Christianity. 
Paintings of the saints by artists such as El Greco, Andrea Sacchi, Jacopino del Conte, Lorenzo Lotto, Jose de Ribera and more are included.
Modern editions of Butler’s Lives, including this one, are broken down by the month that each saint’s feast day falls within. This is an abridged version.
