About the Author

Dom Basil Watkins has edited this work on behalf of the Benedictine Monks of St. Augustine's Abbey, Chilworth (formerly Ramsgate), UK.


An excellent source of biographical information on the saints... which contains entries for all who have been canonized or beatified by the Church to date... Libraries will want this exceptional book to modernize their reference collections on the saints.
*Catholic Library World*

The eighth edition - "entirely revised and reset" - of an invaluable reference work.
*Catholic Herald*

..."a comprehensive biographical dictionary" edited by Basil Watkins OSB... if sanctity could be purchased or pondered by pounds and ounces, this book is twice the bargain...
*Review for Religious*

A useful reference work for anyone who teaches theology or religious studies, for members of the clergy, for monasteries and reliigous houses, and for those interested in Christian history... this is a standard reference work, now brought up to date to reflect more recent developments in the Church and in scholarship.
*Fr Ambrose Bennett, Christian B. Peter Librarian, St Louis Abbey, MO, USA*

The current edition of this work, which records the biographies of Catholic saints, introduces new information while building on its numerous predecessors (the first edition was published in 1921, the seventh in 2002) … Integration of the Church's two liturgical calendrical sources for the first time in English, and the inclusion of deleted entries from past works along with the reasons for this action, make this full revision the authoritative compendium without peer, useful for all those dealing with church history. Summing Up: Essential. Advanced undergraduates through researchers/faculty; general readers; professionals/practitioners.
