The Vincentian Research Library of DePaul University has recently acquired a brief biography of Sister Julienne Jouvin (1677-1744) who twice served as Superioress General of the Company of the Daughters of Charity (1724-1730 and 1736-1742). She died in 1744 while serving at the royal parish of St. Louis at Versailles. This is one of the rare biographical studies of pre-revolutionary Daughters of Charity. This volume was published in Paris in 1744.
