With Pilgrim at Sea the author has completed his tetralogy (set of 4 books) searching for God--journeying to the Holy Land but we never get there, we are always at sea. In this tale, Giovanni, the priest, insults the pious travelers and advises Tobias to embrace insecurity as the only sure thing because the sea does not concern itself with right and wrong, sin or guilt. You learn to accept yourself from the sea--his existentialist sermon. There is a shipwreck and plundering, etc

"Attablé dans la pénombre de la taverne, le bourreau buvait. Tout au long de la soirée, puis de la nuit, les autres clients de l'auberge vont bruyamment parler entre eux, par-dessus leurs chopes de bière, en feignant d'ignorer leur inquiétant voisin de table qui, lui, se tait. Ils racontent des histoires, des histoires de mort, de brigandage, de vengeances paysannes, d'exécutions - et toutes s'adressent à celui qui, obstinément, garde le silence. Peu avant l'aube, avant d'aller faire son travail, le bourreau va répondre à ses persécuteurs, lui qui porte sur ses épaules les crimes commis depuis les débuts de l'humanité. Et ce sera inoubliable

The sibyl by Pär Lagerkvist( )

10 editions published between 1980 and 2012 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this powerful, poetic, and moving parable, the Wandering Jew of medieval Christian legend journeys to Delphi to consult the famed oracle of the pagans. He is turned away but not before learning that one of the most adept of the old priestesses, or sibyls, lives in disgrace in the mountains above the Temple. In her rude goat-hut he seeks the meaning of his disastrous brush with the son of God. She reveals that she, too, has been touched by the son of a god, a very different son, not quite human, born of her own body. He dwells with her as a constant reminder of the betrayal of her mystical and erotic union with the divine, her punishment, and--perhaps--her redemption
