An online forum designed for researchers and scholars on Vincentian topics broadly considered. This is a place to learn about Vincentian resources, share current research projects, ask questions about possible archival and bibliographic resources, announce publications or participation in conferences, and seek grant funding.

Louise de Marillac Exhibit and St. Vincent’s Reading List


Seen here is an image from one of the oldest books in our collection: La Vie de Mademoiselle le Gras: Fondatrice et Premiére Supérieure de la Compagnie des Filles de la Charité, Servantes de Pauvres Malades, by Nicolas Gobillon. Paris: Chez André Pralard, 1676. . This book is now on display through April 19, as part of our Louise de Marillac exhibit.

Special Collections and Archives at Richardson Library, DePaul University, also has a copy of Gobillon from 1676. DePaul’s copy of the book is featured in a recurring blog series from DePaul University entitled St. Vincent’s Reading List. The series explories texts known to have been read and recommended by Saint Vincent de Paul, those which can be presumed to have been read by him, and works published during his lifetime (1581-1660) illustrating his world. All materials discussed are held by DePaul University’s Richardson Library.
