About the book:

Most folks have heard of Francis of Assisi, but not everyone recalls that he spent his early life as a businessman and soldier before responding to an inner voice and dedicating himself to God, poverty, and lepers--nor is it widely remembered that he received the impression of the stigmata on his body in 1224, two years before he died. And while everyone knows the Mary who was the mother of Jesus Christ, there tends to be a bit of confusion between Mary the sister of Lazarus and Martha, Saint Mary of Egypt, and Mary Magdalene. And how many are familiar with Mary Magdalene de' Pazzi, saint and mystic of 16th-century Florence? Routledge's Who's Who alphabetically catalogs some 1,000 men and women who've been significant in Christian history, providing accessible dates, religious relevance, and biographical profiles on the movers, shakers, and devout practitioners of the religion. In addition, there's a glossary of technical terms and a chronology of important historical events. As with all Routledge books, it's an excellent resource for scholars, educators, clergy, and students of religion. --Stephanie Gold
