Hollywood will be jealous of the stories recently published in English for the first time. Reading like a fictional tale of every debase human act imaginable, the accounts of the nuns of Sant’Ambrogio are indeed shocking. Considering this occurred in 19th Century Rome, it is even more unbelievable.

The Villain/Vixen: Maria Luisa. A nun referred to as “stunning” in appearance. Her recruitment efforts were lauded as she personally brought 20 women into the convent at Sant’Ambrogio. Maria was able to convince the other nuns that she was having visions and visits from heaven. These visions, she claimed, were a call to lesbian sex that would lead to sanctification. Maria claimed saint hood stating she could do supernatural things and possessed heavenly gifts. Her encounters were not limited to women, she also claimed she could alleviate demonic possession through sexual intercourse. It is suspected that she murdered three nuns and attempted to murder at least one other. Ultimately, she was imprisoned in isolation for 18 years for her crimes.

The Heroin: Princess Katharina von Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen. Her first visit to Rome in 1834, at the age of 17, caused this young liberal girl to embrace the strictest form of Catholicism. In 1858, the twice widowed noblewoman returned to Rome and entered the Sant’Amborogio convent. She remained there only 15 months. The Princess accused Maria of attempting to poison her after she discovered a cult of sex and perversion.

A Victim: Peter Kreuzburg was a young theologian who frequented the convent. Princess Katharina read one of his letters addressed to Maria which she considered obscene. It seems he wanted to have sex with Maria and another nun. Katharina, and others, were convinced that Maria had an ongoing affair with this man.


A Hero: Gustav Adolf zu Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst, Princess Katharina’s cousin and confidant of Pope Pius IX. He received a letter from Katharina and responded accordingly helping her escape the convent.

A Victim: Sister Agnese Eletta, she was expelled from the church, but confirmed Katharina’s accusations were true relating her own inappropriate conduct with Maria.

Prof. Dr. Hubert Wolf

The Author: Herbert Wolf learned of the Sant’Ambrogio scandal after Pope John Paul II opened a previously inaccessible area of the Vatican archive to the academic community. He is a professor at the University of Muenster, Germany and has written ‘The Nuns of Sant’Ambrogio’ which details the scandal. Only recently has his manuscript been translated into English.

Sant'Ambrogio, interno

The Catholic Church: Received Princess Katharina’s allegations against the convent only weeks after her escape. Her reports were confirmed. Maria’s behavior was recounted by numerous nuns from the order and it appears lesbian initiation was required before sisters in the convent took their vows. Upon discovery of the perversion, the convent was dissolved.

A Villain: It appears at least one priest also participated in the activities at Sant’Ambrogio. His “blessings” included sexual contact and kissing the nuns.

Perhaps there are lessons to be learned from this scandal. History really does repeat itself and the church is not immune to scandal. The faithful, however, are able to discern heretical teaching and the church can survive. And the world goes round and round.
