Afterlives of the Saints


In Afterlives of the Saints, Colin Dickey presents us with a history of faith as told through some of the strangest stories of the saints. These are saints who murder, saints who gouge out their own eyes and hold them out for inspection, saints who minister to the petty and the bizarre and the maligned. These are saints who, when visited in a contemporary context—as saints in the cities—actually enlarge our concept of faith.

“An unusual and quite fascinating collection of tales.”  — Booklist
