About the Author

Dr. Therese Taylor is a Lecturer in Modern History at Charles Sturt University, Australia. She has written articles on many topics, including the history of medicine, religion, and crime.


"'Taylor's excellent biography offers a fascinating look at Bernadette's short and in many ways tragic life. The book thus offers not only a vivid portrait of a remarkable young woman, but fascinating insights into the interactions between official and popular religion. Taylor does not take a stand on the veracity of Bernadette's visions, and her tone is balance enough to appeal to sceptics and believers alike. The book is well researched and written in elegant prose refreshingly free of scholarly jargon. This must-read for scholars' of French religious history and/or the history of women is accessible for undergraduates and general readers as well. Essential. All libraries/levels' Choice"
