A huge compilation of classic literary and artistic works honoring the Virgin Mary. "This book contains a careful selection of the best Marian texts from the gospel to this day. In a sense, it is a historical overview of important fragments of Mariology, Marian spirituality, and liturgy. Alongside texts of the Fathers of the Church to, the Saints and the Popes, are also highlights of beautiful hymns, poems, and exaltations of theologians, thinkers and writers," (translation of the publisher's blurb.).
