Description

Bloomington & Indianapolis: Indiana University Press, 2003. xi + 258 pp. $ 39.95. FOR A BRETON PRIEST ordained in 1944, the-turn-of-the-century America so vividly evoked here is almost as exotic as the Palestine which is at the core of the book. And yet a solid ground is shared by the baptized Christians of all the churches, l learned to read in an illustrated book entitled Histoire Sainte, and the menu of my first year of Latin included an Epitome historiae sacrae. Angers, where I have lived since 1952, possesses a replica of the Holy Sepulchre, to which the faithful repair as pilgrims especially during Passiontide: the funds for its erection came largely from the cruises which yearly took a fair number of priests, professors, and other bourgeois to the Middle East. Lebanon was part of the package because of its links with France, some dating back to the crusades, and others to a treaty between Francis I and the Ottomans; also because the Maronites, for all their Oriental rite and married priests, belong to the Roman Church.
