"ONE HUNDRED SAINTS is still the only version of Butler's long-revered Lives of the Saints that presents saints in all their splendor-in both word and image. The selection reflects contemporary interest and patronage. All the Apostles are featured, as are the Church Fathers (e.g., Augustine, Jerome, Thomas Aquinas). Also included are saints whose lives and works provide fascinating glimpses into their holy lives and the traditions and beliefs that have grown because of them. We see Bernini's sculptural representation of Teresa of Avila in ecstasy; Sebastian's martyrdom as pictured by Titian; and El Greco's penetrating rendering of St. Martin and the Beggar."
