The Catholic Church has always placed before the eyes of the faithful the example of holiness set by the saints. In the first Preface of the Mass for Holy Men and Women we read: "In their lives... More > on earth you give us an example. In our communion with them you give us their friendship. In their prayer for the Church you give us strength and protection." Moreover, as the Second Vatican Council put it, "every act of love offered by us to those who are in heaven tends to and terminates in Christ, 'the crown of all the saints,' and through him in God who is wonderful in his saints and is glorified in them." This book, then, should be a welcome addition to the ever increasing number of volumes that treat of the lives of the saints. With the addition of feast days proper to the United States, it is offered to the English-speaking public in the hope that is will foster greater devotion to the saintly men and women who are not only historical figures worthy of our veneration but models worthy of our imitation.< Less

La christianisation, opérée en Gaule du IVᵉ au VIIIᵉ siècle, a recouvert les cultes polythéistes tout en préservant des éléments rituels... More > et légendaires ancrés dans les pratiques aussi bien que dans l’imaginaire des populations converties. Les traditions attachées à la vénération des saints conservent en premier lieu cet héritage. Le thème abordé ici ressort au couple divin dioscurique, essentiel chez les Celtes anciens, qui traverse l’Empire romain pour réapparaître sous les traits de divers duos de pieux évangélisateurs. Ces personnages chrétiens, souvent inexistants sur le plan historique, portent dans les événements de leurs Vies, dans les conditions de leurs martyres ainsi que dans les lieux et les dates liés à leur dévotion, des motifs si cohérents et convergents qu’ils permettent de retrouver sans peine des traits majeurs de la fonction et des mythes associés par les Gaulois à leurs deux augustes Jumeaux, canoniquement opposés et complémentaires.< Less
