Did you know that there are seven Dominican Sister Saints who have been elevated to the status of Blessed within the Dominican Order of Preachers? Did you know that Mary Magdalene is known as the Protectress of the Dominican Order of Preachers?

Phillips Memorial Library, Special and Archival Collections are pleased to present a semester-long series of Library exhibit highlighting the religious women of the Dominican Order through renaissance art.

Join us in celebrating these extraordinary Saints who possessed unshakable and inspirational faith in the Lord. These women overcame seemingly insurmountable obstacles presented by their families, friends, and society in order to fulfill God’s plan for their lives. Please join us in honoring these special women as we begin our exhibition with St. Catherine of Siena.
