Book of Saints – Joel

detail of the portrait of Joel by Michelangelo Buonarroti, 1509, Cappella Sistina, VaticanArticle

(Saint) Prophet (July 13) (8th century B.C.) One of the Twelve Minor Prophets. He prophecied in the Kingdom of Juda about the same time as Osee in that of Israel. Apart from what we read in the Canonical Book of Holy Scripture containing the record of the revelations made to him, we have no particulars concerning him. His body is enshrined under the High Altar of the Cathedral of Zara in Dalmatia.
