A Closer Look - Saints

Sale price £9.99 Regular price

A Closer Look: Saints explains, through the National Gallery's comprehensive collection of religious images, the significance of saints and their role in the history of European painting. Erika Langmuir describes how saints became part of the institutions of the Christian church, the different types of saints, and the increasing importance of saintly relics in the Middle Ages.

Explaining the way in which saints were created - the process of canonisation and the promotion of candidates by religious orders, A Closer Look: Saints also provides an introduction to a wide variety of personalities, from the ambiguous penitent Mary Magdalen and the obscure martyrs venerated only by the cities of which they were protectors, to internationally celebrated figures whose sermons and deeds are well documented, such as Saint Jerome or Saint Francis of Assisi.
