Description: The answers to these and thousands of other questions can be found in one book, the Dictionary of Christian Biography, compiled by Michael Walsh, librarian of Heythrop College, London. It is the first one-volume biographical reference for those seeking information about the lives of the world's Church leaders -- irrespective of denomination. Until now, no one book in religion existed to serve as a comprehensive reference tool for those who have, over the last two millennia, contributed to the history and study of Christianity.

The Dictionary of Christian Biography treats a range of figures prominent in Christianity who are no longer living. Each of the nearly 6,000 entries is relatively short -- about one paragraph -- yet contains essential information about the significant men and women from the past 2,000 years of Christian history.

The Dictionary of Christian Biography covers the whole Church, geographically as well as chronologically, and embraces all Christian denominations: Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, and Evangelical. Those who figure large in the New Testament are also included as well as some of the major figures of the Old Testament and Apocrypha. This makes the Dictionary of Christian Biography truly comprehensive.

Categories for inclusion are saints, popes, archbishops of Canterbury, and other leaders of major denominations; any theologian, Scripture scholar, or ecclesiastical historian from the earliest times down to the last century who has contributed to the understanding of the Christian faith; founders of important organizations within Christianity such as religious orders, missionary societies, and significant lay movements; and men and women whose work isinspired by their Christian principles. The volume also includes a detailed bibliography of sources to aid readers searching for more information about a particular individual. Entries are arranged alphabetically for ready reference. A comprehensive bibliography is included.

Anyone interested in Church history, whether political or devotional, and in the study of the Christian faith will find the Dictionary of Christian Biography an essential tool for learning about the men and women who had significant impact in Christian history.
