Women, Sainthood, and Power joins the study and the author's fascination of Catholic saints to a decades-long investigations of psychology, feminism, and the impact of historical, cultural, racial and class forces on women. This book explores the life stories of an international gallery of female saints from the wide-angle lens of several intellectual disciplines and the close-up view afforded by keenly observed fine points of character. She combines multidisciplinary scholarly research with a novelist's eye for detail to create vivid portraits of saints in their times and places. Using her own memories, she argues that there are lessons to learn today from the lives of these exceptional women.
