The satin slipper; or, The worst is not the surest by Paul Claudel( Book )

356 editions published between 1925 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 2,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Satin Slipper, in full The Satin Slipper; or, The Worst Is Not Always Certain, philosophical play in four “days” or sections by Paul Claudel, published in 1929 in French as Le Soulier de satin; ou, le pire n’est pas toujours sûr. It was designed to be read rather than performed (an abridged version was staged in 1943), and it is often considered Claudel’s masterpiece. The play is an ambiguous and convoluted epic work that celebrates Roman Catholic doctrine. It is set on four continents during the late 16th and early 17th centuries and concerns the love of Rodrigue, a Spanish conquistador, for Prouhèze, a married woman. The two are separated for many years while he is on a mission to the Americas to colonize for the Spanish crown and she is sent to North Africa. When Rodrigue and Prouhèze finally meet again, they do not consummate their great passion. They sacrifice their happiness in exchange for God’s ultimate grace." (, accessed 11/12/2019)

I believe in God, a meditation on the Apostles' Creed by Paul Claudel( Book )

38 editions published between 1961 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic work by the great French poet and writer Paul Claudel is a soaring meditation on the profound Christian truths of the Apostles' Creed. Claudel, a deeply spiritual Catholic poet who meditated at length on what the Church taught him, is filled with ecstasy and wonder as he celebrates his faith, his hope, and his love. The reader will be captivated by the profundity of thought, the enthusiastic faith, the deep sense of joy, the fresh and vivid images, occasionally tinged with a delightful humor that is unforgettable. Claudel marvels at the goodness and love of God, at his work of creation and redemption, and at Christ and the Blessed Virgin. Along with Claudel's meditations and mystical insights, each chapter includes a brief statement of doctrine based on the Summa of St. Thomas and the Catechism, along with a few explanatory words showing the relation of this theology to Claudel's poetry.
