This volume collects eight essays and talks by the late author of the definitive biography of St. Jane Frances de Chantal, Madame de Chantal: Portrait of a Saint (1962). Among the topics addressed are the co-founding of the Order of the Visitation of Holy Mary by Francis de Sales and Jane de Chantal; the changing image of Jane over the period of four centuries; Dr. Stopp's reflections on her Madame de Chantal twenty-five years after its initial publication; and hiddenness as the hallmark of the saint's personality and holiness.



"The third and fourth essays in this volume trace with fascinating precision the changing image of Chantal in hagiography, starting with the official Life of 1644 and going on to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. [] The seventh essay in this volume 'Portrait of a Saint, twenty-five years on' [] is a tour de force. [] this volume contains abundant material to indicate that Elisabeth Stopp's 'search for Chantal' [] is rich in posthumous significance for our times."

Dermot Fenlon, Hallel
