Florence Nightingale


(1820–1910) Unitarian, sometime Anglican, accused of “eclectic religious beliefs.” The leading figure in the development of modern nursing practice through her pioneering work in the Crimean War, she recruited and trained women to serve in places of disease and violence where Victorian sensibilities taught that “gentle ladies ought not to go.” Among her recruits were Anglican nursing sisters from the Sisters of Saint Margaret founded by fellow saint John Mason Neale. (August 13)
