By Sylvain Maréchal,Sheila Delany

“My God! Pardon me if i've got dared to make sacred issues serve a profane love; however it is you who've positioned ardour into our hearts; they don't seem to be crimes—I consider this within the purity of my intentions.” —Agatha, writing to Zoé

In pre-revolutionary Paris, a tender girl falls for a good-looking younger priest. To be close to him, she attire as a guy, enters his seminary, and is invited to turn into a completely ordained Catholic priest—a occupation forbidden to ladies then as now. Sylvain Maréchal’s epistolary novella bargains a biting rebuke to non secular associations and a hypocritical society; its perspectives on love, marriage, classification, and advantage stay suitable at the present time. The e-book results in los angeles Nouvelle France, which grew to become a part of British-run Canada in the course of Maréchal’s lifetime. With thorough notes and creation by way of Sheila Delany, this primary translation of Maréchal’s novella, l. a. femme abbé, brings a little-known yet revelatory textual content to the eye of readers drawn to French heritage and literature, background of the unconventional, women’s experiences, and non secular studies.
