Reference > Rev. Alban Butler > Lives of the Saints
Of all the parts of history, biography, which describes the lives of great men, seems the most entertaining and the most instructive and improving.
An Introductory Discourse
Rev. Alban
The Lives of the Fathers, Martyrs, and Other Principal Saints
Compiled from Original Monuments and Authentic Records
In Twelve Volumes
Rev. Alban Butler
While these 1,458 entries are composed from a distinctly 18th-century Catholic perspective, Alban’s syntheses of multitudinous histories result in an enlightenment of the ecclesiastical side of Western cultural development, with particular emphasis on the early Christian era.
