9780232514476: Jeanne Jugan: Humble, So as to Love More

Forty-seven years of fairly commonplace existence, twelve years of intense evangelical creativity, twenty-seven years of silent and hidden inactivity: as the summary of a long life, this is an unusual one, and the reasons for the protracted retirement are even more disconcerting. But such was the life of Jeanne Jugan, foundress of the Little Sisters of the Poor, from 1792 to 1879. To describe her life - and as far as we may, her inner pilgrimage - we shall closely follow the witnesses, sometimes regretting that they were so discreet and that she had so little to say about herself. If we happen to advance a personal theory, we shall clearly stat that we are doing so. We shall also do out best to present her life against the contemporary social history of her country. We shall not burden the text with footnotes, even when trying to elucidate points of some complexity. The source material will be found listed at the end of each chapter. A critical evaluation of these sources is given in an appendix at the back of the book. [From the Introduction]
