1837 Original Tresors De Confiance En Dieu Sourced For Princethorpe

Original Tresors De Confiance En Dieu added to the Archives.

Over the summer another special treasure was added to the archives when the College spotted a rare listing on the auction site ebay.

The original Tresors De Confiance En Dieu was quickly purchased and is now held safely within the Foundation's archives.

The book written in French, tells of the Order of Benedictine nuns who fled the French Revolution in 1792. After a period elsewhere in England, they settled in Princethorpe (Warwickshire) in the mid 1800s building the Priory which we know today as Princethorpe College.

Literally translating as 'Treasures of Trust in God ' we were more than delighted to add this treasure to our archives. It is a lovely old book in great condition.
