Description

Th?r?se of Lisieux died on 30 September 1897. Nine months later, the now classic Story of a Soul appeared and proved an immediate success. However, when historians had access fifty years later to manuscripts written by Th?r?se they were surprised to discover enormous differences between these texts and the published version of Story of a Soul.

Jean-Fran?ois Six has written this new book with two purposes. First, he recalls the history of how Mother Agn?s, Prioress of the Carmelite convent and sister of Th?r?se altered and completed Th?r?se s text so that it became a travesty of the original. Secondly he re-establishes the truth of the last months of Th?r?se s life, her authentic spiritual message, and her contribution to the history of mysticism.

Here is a key study and a crucial work of rehabilitation.
