The Lives of the Saints, by Alban Butler (12 Vols.) from Logos Bible Software contains the unabridged text of Alban Butler’s classic work, The Lives of the Fathers, Martyrs and Other Principal Saints. Originally published between 1756 and 1759, Butler’s magnum opus is an unparalleled English source for the study of the Christian saints. Often appearing on best-seller lists alongside the Bible, the Missal, and Thomas à Kempis’ The Imitation of Christ, Butler’s Lives of the Saints is an enduring classic and has been through numerous reprints and editions in its 250 year history.

With biographical accounts of over sixteen hundred saints arranged according to the saints' feast days, Butler’s Lives of the Saints remains the authoritative hagiography (study of saints) in the English language. Butler’s work is a priceless companion for research into the historical figures of Christianity or for simply connecting with the faithful who have gone before. These volumes function perfectly as an evening meditation but are versatile enough to use for term projects, home school assignments, or real-life sermon illustrations.

    Hi All! I have a query about this book series for those who own it, please. Does the "saints" it covers refer to those canonized by the Roman Catholic Church? God bless you and thank you in advance for any answers to my query. Blessings, David 🤠 <')))))>< "Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification."
