The following is a partial list of some of the Sainted featured in one of the three novels in the series. I have written of many of the Sainted that are from the earliest days of Christianity and they were inspired by the love of Jesus, belief He is the Son of Man and His command over their faith. There are a number of other saints that I will add to this section over time.
