Item description for Saints: A Visual Guide by Edward Mornin & Laura Mornin...

Combines brief biographies of 137 popular saints with sculpture, fresco, marble and stone relief, stained glass, woodcut, prayer card, plaster, and mosaic images.

Publishers Description
There are plenty of guides to the saints, but this is the only one that will help you identify the saint that you are looking at.

Taking the 140 most popular and widely represented saints (from the earliest -- the apostles, up to Padre Pio and others from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries) the authors provide brief accounts of the saint's achievements (or legend) and details of their conventional attributes -- usually tools of their trade or the instruments of their martyrdom. Then they provide a clear and unambiguous color representation of the saint, taken from sources the world over, often from popular imagery such as playing cards, inn signs, or advertisements, as well as from high and low art.

Usefully, there is a comprehensive reference index identifing saints by things associated with them -- from anchors (St. Clement) to wounds (St. Roch if in the leg, St. Rita if in the brow). Practical, attractive, and well-informed this little book will be invaluable for students and lovers of art of all ages.

Reviews - What do customers think about Saints: A Visual Guide?

Inspiration by example  Jan 9, 2007
A nice little volume of many of the most influential saints and why they are important to us as examples for our lives. I'd like the volume to be a little bigger and have a different binding that allows it to open fully more easily so it's easier to see text and paintings that illustrate each saint.
