  • Ranges over subjects as diverse as the history of canonization processes, the Reformation critique of the cult of saints, and the role of saints in other religious traditions

  • Discusses the relevance of sainthood in the postmodern era

  • Two appendices describe patron saints and the iconography of saints in art.
