Though St. Elizabeth of Hungary lived over 800 years ago, she has a unique appeal for Christians today. Love, rather than ideology or politics, was the basis of her whole life. Born in 1207, the daughter of King Andrew II of Hungary and married to Ludwig IV, the Landgraf of Thuringia, Elizabeth was a happily married woman who loved her husband and children. As a lover of the poor, she not only practiced charity, but protested the injustices practiced against the poor in the feudal world, even her husband's own policies. Above all, Elizabeth hungered for God and found him in her everyday activities as a noblewoman, ruler, wife and mother before she found him in religious life and service to the poor in imitation of St. Francis. This new life, published to coincide with the 800th anniversary of her birth, is based on the most up-to-date research and is accompanied by the testimonies given at her canonization process, including some that have never before been translated into English. The author, Lori Pieper, Catholic journalist, scholar and translator, received her Ph.D. in history from Fordham University. She specializes in women's history, hagiography and church history.
