Most widely held works by E. Gurney Salter
The vision of God by Nicholas( Book )

6 editions published between 1928 and 2007 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known for his deeply mystical writings about Christianity, Nicholas of Cusa wrote this, his most popular work, against a backdrop of widespread Church corruption. God, he believed, is found in all things, and thus cannot be perceived by man's senses and intellect alone. The path to ultimate knowledge, then, begins in recognizing our own ignorance. Deeply influenced by Saint Augustine, Nicholas mixes the metaphysical with the personal to create a deeply felt work, first published in 1453, designed to restore faith in even the most jaded

The little flowers of Saint Francis of Assisi by Thomas Okey( Book )

8 editions published between 1910 and 1963 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First printed in 1476, this collection of stories, or "little flowers," chronicles Saint Francis of Assisi's journeys, activities, and miracles. Told in brief anecdotes of charming simplicity, the stories include Saint Francis' sermon to the birds, his taming of the savage wolf of Gubbio, his conversion of the Sultan of Babylon, and his miraculous healing of a leper. Picturesque and poetic, The Little Flowers of Saint Francis transports readers to the Middle Ages for an inspiring portrait of the saint and his earliest disciples. One of the world's most popular and widely read religious classics, its universal appeal extends to people of all faiths and every intellectual level

1 edition published in 1910 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Fioretti...[are] fixed upon Saint Francis and his earliest disciples in the way in which legend accumulates about any celebrated character in history. But, in this case, and in contrast with the situation that usually prevails in folk-lore, the 'stories' have a certain authority as history. Seventy years of Franciscan scholarship, to which L. Manzoni, Paul Sabatier and Giunio Garavani have made fundamental contributions, enable us even to evaluate the authenticity of the Little Flowers." -- From Introduction
