Publisher description: Explores the relationships men, women, and children have formed with the Virgin Mary and the saints in twentieth-century American Catholic history, and reflects, more broadly, on how people live in the company of sacred figures and how these relationships shape the ties between people on earth. Author Robert Orsi also considers how scholars of religion occupy the ground in between belief and analysis, faith and scholarship.
