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. This should now be the first place to which one turns for information on the saints' struggles, sufferings, and achievements. The hagiographies are furnished with explanatory notes and references. An alphabetical index of the Saints and feast days has been included at the end of each volume.

Lavishly illustrated with icons, commemorating the Saints for each day of the month.

November Volume: 159 icons

Each month contains over a hundred accounts of Saints with full-length Lives and biographical notices, or feasts with homilies. Some major figures and days have received as many as one hundred pages. Thousands of additional names are also given with either simple commemorations or brief information.
