Lives of the Saints translated from the Greek — complete, unabridged, & annotated.
This is one of FOURTEEN (14) volumes now available in a new 14-volume series of books from Holy Apostles Convent and Dormition Skete.
The Lives of the Saints in English, together with homilies for major feast days, are arranged around the monthly lectionary calendar of the Orthodox Church.
This classic collection, which has inspired generations of Orthodox, is indispensable for all. No Orthodox library can be without this standard and blessed reference work.

An alphabetical index of the Saints and feast days has been included at the end of each volume.
