  • As we celebrate the tercentenary of Nano Nagle’s birth in 2018, this timely publication considers the untold contribution made by the founders of the Presentation Sisters to the field of social justice in Ireland and abroad, and also provides a fascinating exploration of her enduring legacy for Christians today.

     

    The editors have invited leading scholars and theologians to engage with various pertinent facets of Nagle’s life and the resulting essays offer a rich insight into the social milieu in which Nano Nagle was born, her pioneering role as a champion of Catholic education and the formative years of the Presentation Sisters; the book also highlights how the charism of the congregation’s early members has remained a defining characteristic of their mission today.

     

    Nano Nagle and an Evolving Charism also analyses the vision of the Presentation Sisters, the order’s immeasurable impact on the lives of the impoverished both at home and overseas, and the great example their mission offers to educators, leaders and care-providers across the globe in the twenty-first century.

    Nano Nagle and an Evolving Charism should serve as a kind of template for spiritual traditions and religious communities attempting to recover, interpret and re- imagine their charism in a global context. Both scholarly and accessible, this text offers an excellent introduction to those unfamiliar with Nano Nagle and a profound theological reflection to those immersed in her legacy. This remarkable book not only explores the life and work of the foundress, but also presents a wider investigation into spirituality and social action in the contemporary world.

    John Markey OP, Professor of Theology, Oblate School of Theology in San Antonio

     

    From the poverty-stricken and colonial context of eighteenth-century Ireland, Nano Nagle lit a flame for freedom through education, leaving us a legacy that continues to grow and expand into the complex world of the twenty-first century. This collection of essays provides the reader with an inspiring overview of Nano Nagle’s charismatic vision.

    This history of the sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary shows how the seeds of hope sown in eighteenth-century Ireland by Nano Nagle were nurtured and grown by generations of her visionary followers. Anyone interested in the ministry of women will want to follow their joyful charism as it spread far and wide.
