Book Description:

Veiled Desires is the first full-length study of the film nun to trace the shifting features of her screen representation in twelve or more postwar films that span a sixty-year period. It not only situates them within the changing history of modern women religious but employs an inter-disciplinary perspective to argue that the film nun projects a complex and often vexed portrait of both traditional religious and modern female desires.
