VHRN Event: "Saint-Lazare as a Women's Prison: 1794-1932."

After its confiscation by the revolutionary government, Saint-Lazare began another long chapter in its history serving as a women's prison until 1932.  The Vincentian Studies Institute is beginning a new "virtual" exhibition series which will take advantage of its extensive collections to mount permanent on-line exhibitions.  The "non-virtual" opening for this "virtual exhibition" is described in the attached flyer, and will take place at DePaul University on 14 April 2011.  On that day the…

Collaborators sought

One of the longest and as yet untranslated series of eye-witness accounts of the life of Vincent de Paul comes from Bro. Louis Robineau. He was the founder’s secretary for several years and after the saint’s death he pulled together his notes. These he arranged according the virtues that Vincent practiced, such as humility, devotion, zeal, etc. He did not write a biography, however.



André Dodin published the first transcription of the French original only in 1991, but this was later… Continue

Myth Deconstruction: Vincent accused of theft

In his biography of Vincent de Paul, Louis Abelly introduced a number of hagiographic myths that continue to haunt Vincentian studies.  For example, Abelly took a conference in which Vincent had related the story of someone he knew who was once falsely accused of theft, and applied it to the saint himself. …

Folleville: January 25, 1617

Anyone who has ever visited Folleville has had the exhilarating experience of walking back in time.  This tiny country church belonging to the Gondi's was the site of the first sermon of the mission preached by Vincent de Paul on the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul.  It is one of those heritage places in France where one can still feel the palpable presence of Vincent.

 

The church itself is divided into two parts.  The front and older part is a simple barrel vaulted…
