5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, 18 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Saints in Art (Guide to Imagery) (Paperback)
I found this book very informative with great colour pictures of the saints in art. This was very helpful to me when I was studying Christian iconography. The only downside to this book is that you need to know the name of the saint as they are featured in alphabetical order; but a great reference book.

This review is from: Saints in Art (Guide to Imagery) (Paperback)
Another fine book in the series published by the J. Paul Getty Museum. See my reviews of other volumes in the series: "Music in Art" and "Medicine in Art". The text gives short biographies of each saint: if you want more detailed ones, consult Donald Attwater's Penguin Dictionary of Saints, and, of course, if you can get hold of it, Caxton's translation of Jean de Voragine's Golden Legend, with its many preposterous stories. There are explanatory notes to the beautifully reproduced paintings, many of which are little known. The 122 saints dealt with here are only a small fraction of the more than 10,000 canonized saints in the Roman Catholic Church, but even the 122 dealt with here include some which are not all that well known.
