Judith Lancaster SHCJ, Cornelia Connelly and Her Interpreters

The story of Cornelia Connelly (1809-1879), wife, mother, and founder of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, was so dramatic that no novelist would dare invent it. She was, for instance, still married when she founded the Society, and she took her five year old son with her into the convent. Cornelia’s unconventional story raises powerful questions about holiness, about religious life, and about women.

Judith Lancaster has not written just another biography of this great figure. Instead she explores the different ways in which people have understood Cornelia since her death. In so doing, she richly illustrates the profound changes in spirituality and in women’s consciousness over the last century. She also shows how we can move beyond uncritical hagiography, and yet still draw inspiration from a great religious figure in the past

paperback 315pp.
