Overview

If the question were to be asked what is the most striking feature of the religious history of the nineteenth
century, I think I should be tempted to answer that nothing has been more remarkable and on the whole more far-reaching in its effects than the incredible growth and multiplication of congregations of religious women. Because of this, the variety of Religious Institutes even in England is sufficiently great to render a
directory of convents in this book. Not least in importance among the useful purposes which it may serve is the help offered to those who are perplexed about the choice of a state of life, and whose acquaintance with the interior of convents or with the work and spirit of the different Religious Institutes is often of the vaguest.

In the book, Miss Steele enumerates over ninety distinct congregations of women settled in Great Britain. The book provides a description of the convents and also discusses the history of the convents and the work of nuns.
