From Vincentian Encyclopedia

Jose Maria Roman writes...

The twentieth century gave to Vincentian historiography the great work, "Le grand saint du grand siècle, Monsieur Vincent" (Paris. Desclée de Brouwer, 1932) This was written in three volumes and was the masterpiece of the Vincentian priest, Pierre Coste (1873-1935).
