Encyclopedia of the Major Saints and Fathers Vol.1
It is difficult to make choices in any category but especially that of saints. However, the choice was not to include high profile figures such as the Virgin Mary, Joseph, the Apostles, prophets and such others. Thus, the Saints covered herein are those about whom we hear only in passing during the occasional sermon, if it so happens that we attend Church during the occasion of their celebration, and the priest decides to mention them. Also includes theological contributions of early Church Fathers and philosophers as well as a brief description of the Seven Ecumenical Councils and their decisions.
