Saints, Signs and Symbols by W. Ellwood Post

By W. Ellwood Post

I used to be trying to find a e-book of the complete sector of Christian symbols, and this publication covers an excellent portion of it (though now not as exhaustive as I need). There are 31 pages of approximately 4 entries according to web page exhibiting in black and white line drawing the trademarks of saints and likewise a short paragraph picking the saint and value of the elements of the brand. There are just seven pages of symbols for God, Holy Spirit, and Jesus, with many extra symbols and lots more and plenty much less heritage details. 5 pages of crosses with names purely, and 4 pages of 32 crops and their symbolism. All of this is often fairly striking, in spite of the fact that i'm pissed off with the 5 pages of outdated testomony Symbols that experience no explaination. All-in-all, if you would like plenty of saints' trademarks this is often the booklet for you, and in case you have been trying to find what i used to be, this can be a nice start line. there isn't any formal bibliography, yet there's a checklist of assets utilized in the acknowledgments.
