Two Vincentians, Turkey's House of Mary, and Nostra Aetate 3

Turkey's House of Mary (Meryem Ana Evi), a popular shrine visited by Muslims and Christians alike, would not exist without the efforts of two Vincentians: Sr. Marie de Mandat-Grancey, a Daughter of Charity working in Izmir, Turkey, who "discovered" and renovated the shrine, and Archbishop Joseph Descuffi, C.M. of Izmir, who promoted the shrine in the 1950s, and whose impassioned speech about shared Christian-Muslim devotion at the shrine helped to influence the development of Nostra Aetate 3 at Vatican II.

Dr. Tvrtković is a historical theologian specializing in the medieval period. Research interests include medieval Christian-Muslim-Jewish relations, pilgrimage literature, medieval women “vernacular” theologians, contemporary Catholic interreligious dialogue, and comparative theology (Islam).
