9780879570200: La Bella Brigata: A Pictorial History of the Kentucky Dominicans

In the introduction to Catherine of Siena: The Dialogue, Sr. Suzanne Noffke, OP, wrote, "She (St. Catherine) was the center of a group (la bella brigata, she called them) drawn from any levels of society and many religious traditions..." "I chose the phrase because it is descriptive of the Dominican Sisters of Kentucky united with associates, friends, partners in mission, and all those sharing our Dominican charism," Sr. Paschala Noonan, said. This book, which follows her successful release of Signadou in 1997, is a pictorial history of the Kentucky Dominicans. A pictorial history uses minimum script and relies on pictures to capture the essence of the story. Sr. Paschala felt this book would add another dimension to the story of the Kentucky Dominicans. "Have you ever observed someone picking up a new book?" she asked. "If the book has pictures the person turns immediately to look at the pictures. History is sometimes considered boring, but pictures bring the story to life." It wasn't easy choosing which photos were best suited to use in telling the Kentucky Dominicans' story. At times she was working with 5,000 photos derived from many sources: archives, submitted photos from sisters, friends, former students, newspaper articles and sometimes anonymous sources who just dropped photos off at her door.
