Summary

The Life and Doctrine of Saint Catherine of Genoa tells the powerful story of fifteenth century mystic and humanitarian, St. Catherine of Genoa. It begins with her biography, which depicts both her great pain over various difficulties and her great love for the poor and the sick as she helped them in the hospital of Genoa. But the Life and Doctrine doesn't simply tell the story of St. Catherine's life; it also contains her two important treatises. The first--Spiritual Dialogue--is a dialogue that emphasizes love and devotion to God and fellow human beings. The second--Treatise on Purgatory--is her extended reflection upon suffering, death, purgatory, and the afterlife. Together, all three works illustrate the power and meaningfulness of a life dedicated to God; further, The Life and Doctrine of Saint Catherine of Genoa can help nurture such a life of dedication.
