Summary
"Examines the pivotal roles of two orders of Irish-American women religious in Charleston between 1820 and 1860. These two groups, the Sisters of Mercy and the Ursulines, played a significant role in education, philanthropy, and social reform in the antebellum south. Building on the independence that their single status afforded them in Ireland, Irish-American nuns not only influenced the society and culture of Charleston; they also were able to transcend traditional southern gender norms."--Abstract
