From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
A small selection of Christian saints are listed below in alphabetical order by Christian name, but if necessary by surname, the place or attribute part of name as well. If an asterisk (*) appears next to a saint's status for a specific church, it means that the saint has been declared "non-historical" by that particular church.
There are more than 10,000 Roman Catholic saints and beatified people. Among the Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox Communion, the numbers may be even higher, since there is no fixed process of "canonization" and each individual jurisdiction within the two Orthodox communions independently maintains parallel lists of saints that have only partial overlap.
Note that the churches within the Anglican communion do not officially canonize saints, though a number of traditional saints are often given the title.
