Complete description

Compiled by a radical journalist and poet in the early days of the French Revolution, these subversively satirical lives of women saints sought to win both women and men away from religion. Though based on authentic hagiography, Marechal's 'new' legendary introduces a sceptical, rationalist perspective that anticipates modern critical approaches. Along with Delany's thorough introduction and notes, "Anti-Saints" offers a new perspective on the cultural climate of the French Revolution and a strikingly modern contribution to our own public conversation on religion. This is a must for scholars and non-specialists alike, and lovers of audacious wit. Top page
