In 2018 I travelled to Liseaux in France, Avila in Spain, Rome in Italy and Bingen in Germany to trace the roots of the four female doctors of the Church.
A few highlights below of what now stands at their significant places. They are much remembered and revered in theses areas and around the world, and it was remarkable to experience a little of their lives even for a short while. Separate blog posts for these remarkable women will follow.
