The Vincentian Studies Institute has announced the open-access publication of an updated, English-language translation of Louise de Marillac: Come Winds or High Waters by Élisabeth Charpy, D.C. Originally published in France as Contre Vents et Marées: Louise de Marillac in 1988, this new edition has been re-designed for presentation as an e-book and updated to reflect the most recent translations of the words and letters of St. Louise de Marillac and St. Vincent de Paul.
The Vincentian Studies Institute of the United States was founded in 1979, and has been housed at DePaul University since 2007 as part of the Office of Mission and Values. The VSI collaborates with the DePaul University Library to publish the Vincentian Heritage Journal, as well as a number of scholarly monographs, translations, and other original works in the Vincentian tradition, all available open access through the university’s institutional repository, Via.
The Library’s Department of Special Collections and Archives holds one of the world’s largest collections of Vincentian books, manuscripts, and other materials, as well as the archives of the Western Province of the Congregation of the Mission. In addition to the foundational texts available through the institutional repository, the University Library provides access to digital collections including a collection of letters written by St. Vincent de Paul.
If you have any questions about the Vincentian Collections, or would like to make use of Vincentian materials as part of your teaching, learning, or scholarship, please contact Morgan Macintosh Hodgetts, Special Collections Instruction Librarian and Liaison Librarian for Catholic Studies.
