A classic portrait of St Philip Neri, which portrays the saint with a particular affection and understanding and sets him against the background of Renaissance Italy.

This edition contains a new introduction and a chronology of the majot events in St Philip's life. Fr Michael Day who translated the work into English was a member of the Birmingham Oratory, established by Cardinal Newman. Louis Bouyer is well known for his many theological writings.
