Description

Marguerite Bourgeoys (1620-1700) was canonized in 1982. This sequel to Patricia Simpson’s biography of Bourgeoys’ early life charts the establishment of a radically innovative religious community of uncloistrered women- the first in the New World.  Simpson goes beyond myth and hagiography to explore Bourgeoys’ thirty-year struggle to obtain official recognition for the Congregation of Notre Dame.
