Chapter Summary

This section presents a glossary of religious terms that occur in this book titled Models of Charitable Care: Catholic Nuns and Children in their Care in Amsterdam, 1852-2002. The theme of this study is the historical care practice of women religious. It focuses on a congregation of Catholic nuns, originating in Amsterdam, who took care of neglected children and other vulnerable groups in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Their initial name was Poor Sisters of the Divine Child (Arme Zusters van het Goddelijk Kind), but they were widely known as Sisters of ?The Providence'. In the 1970s this became their official name; it is written with inverted commas.

Keywords: Amsterdam; catholic nuns; charitable care; women religious
