Product Description
There have been countless depictions of the Christian saints by artists through the centuries. In this beautiful book, Sister Wendy Beckett offers us a selection of saints, some well known, others far less so. The works of art she has chosen – dating from the fifteenth century to the present day – give us an insight into the lives of these holy men and women as seen by a wide variety of artists. Sister Wendy also leads us to reflect on the message they have for our own lives. Above all, she calls us to remember that “All of them take their meaning from the presence in their life of Jesus.”
