The Vitae section collects biographical entries on persons important to the history of religious women and communities. Here we include both short biographies authored by modern scholars and brief data--sometimes only names--about otherwise unknown religious women. We also provide links to historical lives edited or translated for electronic publication in Monastic Matrix. Our long-range goal is to develop the Vitae section as a tool that can function both as a biographical dictionary and a prosopographical resource.
