Quick Overview

This account of the Brigidines, formally known as the Sisters of St Brigid, expands the current knowledge of the congregation and its mission to the rural communities of Ireland, America, Australia and New Zealand.

This account of the Brigidines, formally known as the Sisters of St Brigid, expands the current knowledge of the congregation and its mission to the rural communities of Ireland, America, Australia and New Zealand. It compares the religious order to similar female congregations, and throws new light on Bishop Daniel Delany of Kildare and Leighlin who founded the Brigidines in 1807.

His motto - strength and gentleness - became the hallmark of Brigidine practice and service. The book highlights the lives, courage and spirit of adventure of many sisters, the hardships they endured, hidden from the public eye, and their significant achievements in education.

Power's work contributes to not only a greater understanding of the religious life but also is an appreciation of the role and adaptability of female religious in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It contains a prosopography of 697 nuns (1807-1922).
