In Hoc Signo Vinces. Victory of the Cross Over the Crescent in the Works of Louis De Wohl
Languages of publication
This study introduces the issue of the depiction of church history in the work of writer Louis de Wohl (1903–1961), focusing on his novels about four individuals living at the time of the Christian- -Muslim wars (Francis of Assisi, Thomas Aquinas, Ignatius of Loyola and Don John of Austria). The author finds that these figures personify the various forms of the victory of Christianity over Islam. De Wohl believes that the two religions are engaged in an ongoing struggle both on a spiritual and a military level.
