A New Dictionary of Saints: East and West is a magnificent new publication which distinguishes itself from others by its comprehensiveness, and in its coverage of Eastern, as well as Western, saints. A New Dictionary of Saints: East and West contains approximately 7,000 Saints and Blessed. Entries are placed in alphabetical order according to name. Where there are numerous saints with the same name (for example John) these are now listed chronologically. The entries include date and place of birth and death as well as family background, education, activity for which the saint is remembered, and whether he/she is a patron saint. In order to be really comprehensive, even possibly mythical saints are included such as Barbara, Christopher and Katherine of Alexandria, because their stories have been so important in art, literature and popular devotion.
A New Dictionary of Saints: East and West is the most complete and accurate "Dictionary of Saints" available.
