St VINCENT DE PAUL
José María Román C.M.
Sr Joyce Howard D.C.
In this biography Father Román views the life of Vincent
de Paul from the inside. He sees it as the fulfillment or otherwise
of a personal vocation. He refers each fragment of the historical
reality that was Vincent to the whole, never isolating individual
facts from their setting in his life and in the events of his times.
This work, translated from the original Spanish, is the most important
biography of St Vincent to be published in English in recent years.
José María Román, Spanish Vincentian priest
and historian, has given a lifetime to research in Vincentian studies.
At present he is archivist of the Madrid Province of the Vincentians.
Joyce Howard is a Daughter of Charity of St Vincent de Paul with
long experience as a translator in the service of her international
