  • Title: L'origine del monasterio di Montevergine in Messina [Eustochia Calafetto left a monastery of Poor Clares to found one that followed the strictest version of the order’s life. Many of her nuns came from important families, and their increasing numbers required expansion of the original monastery. The monastery benefited from Eustochia’s reputation for sanctity, but eventually it became less rigorous in the observances that she had promoted. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
