By: Alban Butler
Edited by: Herbert J. Thurston, S.J. and Donald Attwater
First written in the mid-eighteenth century, Butler's Lives of the Saints, now available in a four-volume set was revised in 1956 to include 2,565 saints compared to the original 1,486. Carefully edited Herbert J. Thurston, S.J., and Donald Attwater to retain the charms of Butler's original prose style, this work of devotion and scholarship offers truths central to Christianity and underlying themes of Christian love.
