From the Preface "The name of Venerable Anne of Jesus is probably familiar to all those who are well acquainted with the life, the work of foundation and the correspondence of St. Teresa of... More > Avila; it also occupies a not unimportant place in the life-story of St. John of the Cross. It is, therefore, not too much to say that none of these subjects can be properly and fully understood unless one has a more than cursory knowledge of her own life and aims. Above all this she was endowed with talents not even second to those of St. Teresa, and she reached a wonderful degree of sanctity." This is a story that cannot be found in print elsewhere, of the transplanting of the Teresian reform from Spain to France and the Netherlands, a remarkable fete given that all of those countries were at war and the populations of France and the Netherlands not especially amenable to Spaniards. Nevertheless, the roots of Carmel were well placed, and the order flourished in convents still there to this day.< Less

More > threatened by the authority figure of Claude Frollo. Hugo's work has spawned many interpretations on film, television and in the theatre, and like Les Miserables, it might be considered less famous as a book than it is on the wide screen. The novel provides an expression of Hugo's Romantic outlook that is early enough in his career not to be tainted by the political landscape but which instead makes use of established systems of authority in the Church and the Army. Clearly this is made necessary by setting the story at the end of the fifteenth century, but in doing so it shows Hugo in his earlier incarnation as the Romantic rather than the Politician.< Less

More > bell-ringer (Quasimodo) who was raised by the Archdeacon (Claude Frollo).
