The Miracles at Sainte-Anne-du-Petit-Cap

The University of Toronto Press has just published Mary Corley Dunn’s The Miracles at Sainte-Anne-du-Petit-Cap and the Making of a Seventeenth-Century Colonial Community. The article appears in the December issue of the prestigious Canadian Historical Review (Volume 91, Number 4, December 2010, pp. 611-635). Mary’s survey of the miracles attributed to Saint Anne (preserved at the church of Sainte-Anne-du-Petit-Cap, Quebec) provide a unique perspective into this colonial community “as governed by the providence of God, aligned with French national interests, and ordered under the authority of the post-Tridentine Catholic Church.” An abstract of this publication is available here. Both Mary and Claiborne Skinner (see post #44, The Upper Country) share an interest in New France, so the family can boast a particular expertise in this rich history. Congratulations to Mary from the tribe!

  1. How absolutely fascinating;looking forward to reading more. Wish I had known about this when I visited the basilica several years ago when I was in Quebec motoring along the coast of the St. Lawrence.

    Congratulations, Mary!
