Sleeping Eve

All Her Ways by Agnes Somers, OSB
(published by the Duluth Benedictine Books, 2008)

This small volume is intended for the students and friends of St. Scholastica as a guidebook to the forms of beauty embodied in her history, her environment, her architecture and symbolism, her liturgy and liturgical appointments, her aesthetic possessions — in short, to the many tangible things by which she attempts to justify the claims of her motto: ”her ways are ways of beauty, and all her paths are peace.“

So begins Sister Agnes Somers’ preface to All Her Ways, a project she started after serving as President of The College of St. Scholastica and Prioress of St. Scholastica Monastery from 1924 to 1942. Completed in 1956, the manuscript was
updated by Sister Joan Braun following her own retirement after a forty-two year tenure as the head librarian at The College of St. Scholastica. She completed her work — amending and correcting the manuscript and providing it with an index — in 2008.More than simply a handy reference, All Her Ways presents the Monastery’s and College’s early history and provides examples of how artwork throughout the campus reflects Scholastican ideals and Benedictine values.
