Available on November 15
"Espín offers readers of Women, Sainthood and Power a window into a group of female saints who have impacted her personal development and spirituality. Their lives are stories of faith, spirituality, and a belief in the power of being a woman. Espín poignantly presents their path to a powerful relationship with the divine.
—Mary Ann Gawelek
"Women, Sainthood, and Power is at once a deeply personal book and a scholarly analysis of a selection of female, Catholic saints from the fourteenth to the twentieth century, ranging from Catherine of Siena and Joan of Arc to Mariana of Quito, Tekakwitha, and Edith Stein. Oliva M. Espín weaves a fascinating tapestry of these women’s stories of faith, resistance, and even defiance. Across six centuries, Espín highlights figures relevant for consideration today.
