The Spirituality of Elizabeth Fox-Genovese

I join Betsy’s many friends in mourning her death on January 2. Here Deal Hudson celebrates her wisdom and scholarly accomplishments.

He provides a link to her moving article about what she describes as her “profoundly countercultural” conversion to the Catholic faith – an account of the “kinship” she felt with St. Augustine’s “moment of certainty in the midst of a longer journey.”
Betsy will be missed for many reasons, not the least her spiritual luminosity and example.
