Description: Antique frontispiece titled 'Acta Sactorum Maii, Tomus VI'. This print depicts various religious figures. Originates from 'Acta Sanctorum', an encyclopedic text in 68 folio volumes of documents examining the lives of Christian saints.

Artists and Engravers: The project was conceived and begun by Jesuit Heribert Rosweyde. After his death in 1629, the Jesuit scholar Jean Bolland ('Bollandus', 1596–1665) continued the work.
