Administrative history

The Monastère des Ursulines de Québec was founded in 1639 in Quebec City, under the leadership of Marie de l’Incarnation. The monastery is the oldest in North America, and it opened Quebec’s first school for girls in 1641. During the siege of Quebec, the monastery was partially destroyed (1759). After the surrender, the monastery provided accommodations and medical care to English soldiers. The Ursulines were known for their embroidery, and amassed a collection of art works described in François Lachapelle and Mario Béland’s book "Répertoire des gravures conservées au Monastère des ursulines de Québec" (1982). The monastery complex was built between the 17th and 20th centuries.

The Monastère des Ursulines de Québec collection was donated by François Lachapelle to the Slide Library, known today as the Visual Collections Repository, in 1982 or 1983. The collection was transferred to the Library's Special Collections from Concordia University's Visual Collections Repository (VCR) on August 29, 2018.
