The Making of a Saint: The Life, Times and Sanctification of Neophytos the Recluse
Cambridge University Press, 29 ene. 2004 - 328 páginas
Every case of sanctification is unique - as unique as the holy man or woman at its centre. Yet at the same time the problem posed is a general one: how does an individual become a Saint? In this bold and pioneering study the author answers the question by providing a detailed analysis of the case of the late twelfth- and early thirteenth-century Byzantine holy man, the Cypriot Saint Neophytos the Recluse.
