St. Scholastica was known as the twin sister of St. Benedict and a founder of the women’s branch of Benedictine Monasticism. Just like her brother, she also followed the life of “ora et labora” and aimed to live a life of work and prayer. She is represented as an abbess in a habit and is surrounded by the symbol of the dove. When St. Scholastica died her brother said he had seen a white dove circling her convent before disappearing into the blue. The white dove has since been a symbol of her soul in heaven as well as her purity.
