Maude Petre (1864-1942) was an English woman who is best known for her involvement in the movement known as Roman Catholic Modernism, and particularly for her role as literary executor for the well-known 'modernist,' George Tyrrell. However, this is only part of Maude Petre's story. She herself wrote a number of books and articles on religious and political topics. She worked out her own theology and spirituality at a time when few Catholic lay women engaged in theological discourse. This work is an account of a spiritual journey and of the theology and spirituality that were developed on that journey.
