Summary
In her introductory essay, Margaret MacCurtain considers the apparent conflict between the dictates of mainstream Christianity and the autonomy of its female adherents. Other articles include bibliographical analyses of pioneering figures such as Methodist Eliza Bennis, Madeleine Sophie Barat, founder of the Society of the Sacred Heart, and Mother Arsenius Morrogh Bernard of the Irish Sister of Charity, as well as studies of the institutional care and missionary efforts of Catholic, Presbyterian and Salvation Army women in the United States, India and Ireland. Literary representations of religious women are discussed in an examination of nuns and single women in the novels of Kate O'Brien, while Eilean Ni Chuilleanain's "J'ai mal a nos dents" is at once a celebration of her aunt, an Irish nun who spent much of her life in a French Convent, and a meditation on the significance of language. Finally, Maria Luddy outlines the potential for further study of women's religious faith and practice through the use of convent archives
