Purchase of the Week The Vincentiana Collection at DePaul University 7/13/2014

 

This week’s featured purchase from the Vincentiana Collection at DePaul University’s Archives and Special Collections is a late 19th century holy card depicting the death of Vincent de Paul. The surviving account of Vincent’s last days documented the fact that he died fully-clothed sitting upright in a chair. The account also recalls the presence of his confreres from Saint-Lazare at his passing.
