The History of Women Religious of Britain and Ireland

This website has been created by members of the History of Women Religious of Britain and Ireland (H-WRBI) in order to encourage research and where possible to make available material to facilitate that research at all levels. The organisation includes both academics, archivists, students and others interested in this area of study. They come from all over the world and meet at an annual conference; otherwise they communicate electronically via a listserve. [WEBSITE]
