Simply written, but so powerful. An early look at the problems of over-emphasis on the intellectual over the heart (and experiential understanding/knowledge) in Western Christianity.

The Song At The Scaffold by Gertrud von le Fort
Rate this book
Clear rating
A fictionalized account of the true story of Carmelite nuns martyred during the final days of the French revolution, this short novella, written as a letter, is the basis for Poulenc's opera, Dialogue of the Carmelites. It is well worth the read.
