This illuminated book contains 136 terse biographies about the pole sitters of thirsty Gumandia. These holy men and women climbed upon a column, pillar, or pole and refused to return to the ground until death claimed them. They preached to gathered crowds and subsisted with help from the faithful. The stylite movement lasted a brief 67 years, beginning with the ascension of St. Myront and ended with the death of St. Wiflyra. The pillar of St. Wiflyra is still a holy location drawing many pilgrims yearly.
