Behind The Beginnings: Benedictine Women In America, M. Incarnata Girgen Osb

Saint Benedict’s Monastery Book Gallery

This study is an attempt to present two sisters who played parts in establishing the Benedictines in America: Mother Benedicta Riepp, the foundress of Eichstätt Benedictine Sisters in America, and Mother Willibalda Scherbauer, who brought them to Minnesota. To accomplish this purpose, the greater part of the study consists of letters to, by, or about Mother Benedicta and Mother Willibalda.
