Item description for Saint Alphonsus and His Brothers: A Study of the Lives and Works of Seven Redemptorists by Hamish Swanston...
Overview Saint Alphonsus Liguori (1696-1787) founded the Redemptorist order, left his mark on the worldwide Congregation, and later became Doctor of the Church. Saint Alphonsus and His Brothers is a useful expansion of the scholarly studies of Saint Alphonsus and the growth of his congregation of missioners. This first-of-its-kind study of the interrelationships among the early Redemptorist "brotherhood" is a behind-the-scenes look at how an early priestly congregation worked. Saint Alphonsus and His Brothers is the story of the early Redemptorist brothers and their relationship with Saint Alphonsus and influence on the development of the congregation of Redemptorists we know today.
