The term "erased from the landscape" (used by Mother Miryam) hints at the Poor Clare Colettine pursuit of anonymity. When a nun dies, she is buried in the enclosed premises with a tombstone listing her religious name (not her birth name) and her death date (not her birthdate) to signify the start of eternal life. This oral history and photography exhibition tells the nuns' stories. The Poor Clares say that their life is meant to be hard. Even as they embrace the ancient rule with the belief that their prayers and penances can change the course of history, they accept uncertainty, explaining they will not know the fruit of their efforts until they die. And yet there is lightness within the cloistered walls. Sister Mary Nicolette shares a secret to the nuns looking young –– the habit covers their grey hair and double chins, she laughs.
