For fans of THE THORN BIRDS and Sara Donati, LOST SAINTS is the second book in the sweeping Lazare Family Saga that transports readers from the West Indies to the Wild West, from Charleston, Paris, and Rome into the depths of the human heart. The series begins with Book 1, NECESSARY SINS/5(12).   This is an excellent excellent story. I highly recommend to all. You will not be disappointed. If you want to read the entire series, it is called the Shadow Saga and book 1 is Of Saints and Shadows (2) Angel Souls and Devil Hearts (3) Of Masques and Martyrs and (4) The Gathering Dark.5/5(5).

Saints' sagas (heilagra manna sögur) and bishops' sagas (biskupa sögur) are vernacular Icelandic translations and compositions, to a greater or lesser extent influenced by saga-style, in the widespread genres of hagiography and episcopal biographies. The genre seems to have begun in . A quick glance over the preface and chapters two and three of The Saga of the Book of Abraham may lead to the hasty decision that the reader is once again confronted with the usual rehashing of the same old, tiresome things. But, happily, such is not the case. This volume is precisely what it is purported to be: a report of "nearly" all known information that has a bearing on the background of.

The relationship between that most popular of medieval genres, the saint's life, and the sagas of the Icelanders is investigated here. Although saga heroes are rarely saints themselves - indeed rather the reverse - they interact with saints in a variety of ways: as ancestors or friends of saints, as noble heathens or converts to Christianity, as innocent victims of violent death, or even as. For fans of THE THORN BIRDS and Sara Donati, LOST SAINTS is the second book in the sweeping Lazare Family Saga that transports readers from the West Indies to the Wild West, from Charleston, Paris, and Rome into the depths of the human heart. The series begins with Book 1, NECESSARY SINS/5.

Book One: Embark is. The historical study that opens the volume treats the manuscripts and Latin sources of the saga, lending insight into authorship and provenance; it also details representations of Martha and Mary Magdalen in liturgical materials, art, and literature from medieval Scandinavia, before turning to the saints’ cults and legends in medieval Iceland.

From that love of God and neighbour, and from the fear and hatred of the enemy (that is, of the devil and sin), every fulness of grace and virtue has descended to me. That love cannot take root in the human heart unless there is there hatred of the enemy, that is, of the devil and sin.

I'm not certain Saga of the Saints is the correct book I'm remembering. My library is packed up somewhere. But if it is, it's a fun read. Lots of antidotes of the first few decades of the Saints. There's a Peter Finney book out there on the Saints but I don't think its in print any more.
