General Note
Original Italian edition: Bakhita : inchiesta su una santa per il. Milan : San Paolo, 2000.
Includes bibliographical references (pages 231-233).
"When Josephine Bakhita was about nine years old, she was kidnapped near Darfur, Sudan, by Arab slave traders. For several years she was subjected to brutal and humiliating treatment until she was bought by an Italian and taken to Venice, Italy, where she later became a Catholic and a nun. Joyfully and serenely Bakhita served in a convent, school, and infirmary run by Canossian sisters in a small, obscure town in northern Italy until her death in 1947. Then something even more remarkable happened. Many hundreds of ordinary prople came to see Bakhita lying in state, and along with these visits came stories about how the simple nun had given comfort, advice, and encouragemenet as she went about her tasks as cook, doorkeeper, nurse, etc. Almost immediately graces and miracles attributed to Bakihita's intercession began to be reported." - back cover
