SISTER LAURA SWAN’S NEW BOOK TO BE RELEASED THIS FALL
After many years of research and writing, Sister Laura Swan’s newest book, The Wisdom of the Beguines: The Forgotten Story of a Medieval Women’s Movement, will be released this fall. “Beguines” was one of many nicknames for women who sought to imitate the early apostles in preaching the gospel, serving the poor, and supporting themselves independently. These were wise, feisty and colorful women. Watch for it at The Priory Store and other booksellers.
