University creates a number of new media resources related to
Vincentian Heritage, including documentaries, podcasts, interviews,
recorded lectures, digital stories, and a searchable database of popular
quotes from Vincent de Paul and Louise de Marillac.
In 2010 to celebrate the 350th anniversaries of the deaths of Saint
Vincent de Paul (September 27, 1660) and Saint Louise de Marillac (March
15, 1660) the Vincentian Studies Institute of DePaul University
undertook the project of creating the first full length-documentary
about Saint Vincent and Saint Louise. “Vincent de Paul: Charity’s
Saint,” is the impressive result of these efforts. It is available for
purcahse as a DVD or to stream for free through our site. The
documentary is available in three languages, in the original English, or
dubbed in Spanish and French
The Vincentian History Research Network (VHRN) is a dynamic online
forum designed for researchers and scholars on Vincentian topics broadly
considered. This is a place to learn about Vincentian resources, share
current research projects, ask questions about possible archival and
bibliographic resources, announce publications or participation in
conferences, and seek grant funding. Members of the VHRN can share in
other ways that will support a community of "Vincentian" scholars.
One of the strengths of the university is our dedication to exploring
the intellectual underpinnings of our mission and values. To this end,
the Office of Mission and Values sponsors a series of lecture programs
in which we invite a wide variety of noted experts to share the
research, questions, conclusions and insights of their research to an
academic community which seeks to engage the great questions of our time
from DePaul's distinctive institutional perspective.
The Vincentian Heritage Podcast is a selection of readings on Vincentian history, spirituality and praxis to help sustain the members of the Vincentian family in our shared efforts to live out the mission, vision and values of St. Vincent de Paul.
