As we celebrate the tercentenary of Nano Nagle's birth in 2018, this timely publication considers the untold contribution made by the founders of the Presentation Sisters to the field of social justice in Ireland and abroad, and also provides a fascinating exploration of her enduring legacy for Christians today.

The editors have invited leading scholars and theologians to engage with various pertinent facets of Nagle's life and the resulting essays offer a rich insight into the social milieu in which Nano Nagle was born, her pioneering role as a champion of Catholic education and the formative years of the Presentation Sisters; the book also highlights how the charism of the congregation's early members has remained a defining characteristic of their mission today.

Nano Nagle and an Evolving Charism also analyses the vision of the Presentation Sisters, the order's immeasurable impact on the lives of the impoverished both at home and overseas, and the great example their mission offers to educators, leaders and care-providers across the globe in the twenty-first century.
