Descrizione

Some readers of Dr. Newman's "Apologia pro vita sua" may remember that, after recounting the circumstances under which the series of Lives of the English Saints was by him projected, and then dropped, the writer goes on to say that he is "glad of the opportunity of preserving what would otherwise be lost, the Catalogue of Saints I formed, which may be useful to others."<br><br>In this list, Dr. Newman tells us that he included "a few eminent, or holy persons, who, though not in the Sacred Catalogue, yet are recommended to our religious memory by their fame, learning, or by the benefits they have conferred on posterity; these have been distinguished from the Saints by printing their names in italics." Their whole number is but fourteen, and the only woman's name so honoured is that of the Countess of Richmond.
