Mary Ward founded the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the 17th Century. This was an order devoted to the education of women so they could play their part in the Church and the World. Her view and aims were revolutionary in their time and a whole of network of Catholic schools remain in place today run by members of Mary Ward's order.;At a time when the IBVM is like many religious orders struggling to redefine its purpose in the modern world and at a time when Mary Ward may herself be canonised by the present Pope, this book is particularly relevant. The work of the order is also controversial and often criticised- indirectly in the novels of Antonia White and the writings of former pupils such as Marina Warner.

This is the first paperback edition of the standard biography of Mary Ward.Mary Ward founded the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the 17th Century, an order devoted to the education of women so they could play their part in the Church and the World. Her view and aims were revolutionary in their time and a whole of network of Catholic schools remain in place today run by members of Mary Wards order.Mary Ward was born in 1585. She listened to the call of God at a time when the Church was reluctant to accept that God would speak directly to a woman, and died in obscurity in 1645.At a time when the IBVM is, like many religious orders, struggling to redefine its purpose in the modern world, and at a time when Mary Ward may herself be canonised by the present Pope, this book is quite exceptionally important.
