Description

The author was a priest in the Catholic Church and subsequently left it as he slowly lost faith in its teachings. He then began a life-long literary career until his death in 1955. He translated over 200 books and some 300 titles under Haldeman-Julius Publications and became know as the "world's greatest scholar. Quoted from the author's "Introduction."

"MONASTICISM, inseparable as it is from every great religious system, seems to emanate spontaneously from the fundamental religious idea. China, India, and Europe, despite their marked divergence in conceiving the ultimate objects of religious belief, and the distinct racial and territorial influences that have affected their development, have been equally prolific in monastic institutions — they seem to be evoked by the simple rudimentary story which is common to them all. And, indeed, we cannot wonder that that story has engendered an organised abdication of earthly joys such as the monastic system embodies. From the earliest ages, changing with their changes and ever growing with their measured roll, religion
has taught men that the world about them was but a veil that hid a brighter world from their gaze, that, amidst the dreary ebb and flow of life, a spark of immortality dwells in the human breast, an inseverable bond with the unseen."

This McCabe's account of his 12 years in a monastery and, not only an account of a life in such a place, it also offers an account of his gradual loss of faith in the religion of his childhood.
