Historical study on catholic girls' lycea relevant to the Dutch debate on article 23 of the Constitution)
Fons Vitae in Amsterdam, Mater Dei in Nijmegen and the Theresialyceum in Tilburg, three Catholic girls' lycea, are described in detail for the period 1914-1968 in Marieke Smit’s historical dissertation. Central question: how did Catholic, female and intellectual education relate to each other at these schools? The desire to found the lycea on their own philosophical basis and to form good citizens did not contradict. In this sense, the dissertation is relevant to the current Dutch education debate on article 23 of the Constitution, according to Smit in ‘In deugd en wijsheid groeien’ (Growing in virtue and wisdom), which she will defend at Tilburg University, on September 18.
