Biographies provide one of the more enjoyable ways to learn history, especially when they are well written. Focusing on the events surrounding the life of someone of great accomplishment gives the reader a window through which to see a slice of a time, its persons and places, as they relate to the subject of the biography.

Most, but not all of the biographies on our website are of extraordinary Catholic men and women whose sanctity, zeal, intelligence, and courage made the Church more holy and the world less evil. One can see in the lives recounted how they impacted a certain part of the world, or, with some other individuals, even the whole world. In some cases, they affected future generations as well. Their lives are posted so that our readers may learn history, especially that of the Church and Christendom, and draw inspiration from the Church’s heroes and heroines. Occasional villains show up here, that we might learn how they, too, impacted history.
