About the Edition

Stalking the Holy is an intimate work of discovery that combines wide-ranging research with Michael Higgins's personal fascination with sainthood. In an attempt to understand people's love of saints, Higgins entwines loose threads from anthropology, politics, theology, and psychology, knitting a narrative that includes case-studies of several prominent saints, including Mather Teresa, Pope Pius XII, and Padre Pio. The result is an extensive examination of sainthood, one that brings new depth to the concept of a saint and brings surprising answers to one man's search for the holy.
