Setting the World on Fire

The Brief, Astonishing Life of St Catherine of Siena

Shelley Emling

Amid the war, plague and social unrest of the 14th century, St Catherine of Siena struggled to bring peace to warring Christian factions. Based on detailed research, this first modern, secular biography offers a portrait of the fascinating and revolutionary woman who offered moral guidance to kings, queens and popes, and still remains an inspiration to Catholics and feminists.
