Butler's Lives of the saints by Alban Butler( Book )

18 editions published between 1956 and 1996 in English and held by 1,289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This classic of hagiography ... provides biographical accounts of 2,565 saints, from the most eminent (Saint Jerome) to the most unlikely (Saint Christina the Astonishing). Tep four volumes move through the year ... and thus encourage fascinated browsing; a reader can check out the saints venerated on his (or her) birthday, discover which are patrons of what and enjoy a lot of good reading. For the most part, this compilation ... eschews legend-mongering and attempts to set down the truth in so far as it is known. Consequently, without denying the miraculous, these lives instead emphasize telling instances of steadfastness, commitment and faith" (Washington Post)
The book concerning Piers the plowman by William Langland( Book )

26 editions published between 1907 and 1972 in English and Multiple languages and held by 815 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Piers Plowman is one of the most significant works of medieval literature. Astonishing in its cultural and theological scope, William Langland's iconoclastic masterpiece is at once a historical relic and a deeply spiritual vision, probing not only the social and religious aristocracy but also the day-to-day realities of a largely voiceless proletariat class. - Publisher

Saint Paul and the mystery of Christ by Claude Tresmontant( Book )

2 editions published in 1957 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of this Jew of Asia Minor, this first-century Pharisee, might be called the history of an obsession. The title 'St. Paul and the mystery of Christ' gives the clue to his life. It had one inspiration, one motive, one end: to preach Jesus Christ. Paul even came to regard his own life as valid only insofar as the Christ-life was its driving force, and it was this doctrine that he preached to others
