Newsnote: “Vincentiana Purchase of the Week” Blessed St. Vincent de Paul and Foundlings

The Vincentiana Collection of Archives and Special Collections at DePaul University has acquired this beautifully hand-colored engraving (12×17) of Blessed St. Vincent de Paul and the Foundlings. The combination of “Blessed St.” is highly unusual. The print is dated from the second quarter of the 19th century. The legend at the bottom of the engraving reads: Le Bienheureuse St. Vincent de Paul, Fondateur de la Congregation de la Mission et des Filles de la Charite.
