A Benedictine Martyrology
Published by Os Justi Press, 2020 | Facsimile reprint | Paperback, 352 pages
This impressive volume, published in 1922 and long out of print, contains an English translation, augmented with new material, of Rev. Peter Lechner's "Ausführliches Martyrologium des Benedictiner-Ordens und Seiner Verzweigungen" of 1855. The purpose is to gather in one place all Benedictine men and women with a reputation for heroic virtue and holiness, whether officially canonized or not, as a supplement to the Roman Martyrology. Unlike the latter, however, the Benedictine Martyrology offers a succinct biography of each figure. It is an impressive and moving testament to the enormous sanctity of the spiritual family of Benedict and Scholastica.
