A complete and unabridged reprint of the classic romance of the Church of the Catacombs which like Ben Hur and Quo Vadis – both of which it preceeded by a number of years – has stood the test of time. A facsimile edition of a compact 1854 edition of Cardinal Wiseman’s well researched tale weaving the stories of St Agnes, St Sebastian, St Tarcisius, St Pancratius together into a compelling novel. There are welcome diversions into the liturgical practice of the early Christians as well as vivid depictions of the setting in Rome around the time of the Edict of Diocletian. A few diagrams also help convey the details of this dramatic time.
