Sous le soleil de Satan by Georges Bernanos( Book )

354 editions published between 1000 and 2020 in 8 languages and held by 2,766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Follows the fortunes of a young, gauche, and fervent Catholic priest who is a misfit in the world and in his church, creating scandal and disharmony wherever he turns. His insight into the inner lives of others and his perception of the workings of Satan in the everyday are gifts that fatefully come into play in the priest's chance encounter with a young murderess, whose life and emotions he can see with a dreadful clarity, and whose destiny inexorably becomes entangled with his own
Dialogues des Carmélites by Francis Poulenc( )

62 editions published between 1957 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 2,299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tragic fate of the nuns of the Carmelite convent at Copiègne during the French Revolution inspired one of Francis Poulenc's most personal works, and one of the most profoundly moving operas in the repertoire. At its center is Isabel Leonard as Blanche de la Force, a shy young aristocratic woman who joins the order on the eve of the Revolution, flees when the sisters, forced to leave their convent, take a vow of martyrdom, and is finally reunited with them as they face death by the guillotine. Felicity Palmer is Madame de Croissy, Patricia Racette is Madame Lidoine, and Elizabeth Bishop is Mother Marie. Paul Appleby and David Pittsinger co-star as Blanche's brother and father

Un mauvais rêve; roman by Georges Bernanos( Book )

87 editions published between 1950 and 2020 in 5 languages and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Bad Dream, Georges Bernanos's posthumously published final novel, is a crime story in the vein of his debut novel Under the Sun of Satan and his compatriot François Mauriac's novel The Dark Angels. In the novel's first part, Bernanos provides a background of the jaded author Emmanuel Ganse and his tortured assistant, Olivier, who cut figures of unsuspecting complicity for the story's ultimate drama. Both Ganse and Olivier harbor obsessions for Simone Alfieri, but only Olivier is successful in pursuing her--little suspecting that Simone's superficial saintliness and "tremendous moral resistance" belie the ruthlessness that will drive her to violence. As the story moves through its second part, Simone concocts her deadly design, even as she wills her spiritual self-immolation. Combining a nightmare's forbidding ambiguity with the piercing specificity of reality, A Bad Dream wrestles with the fundamentally supernatural aspect of crime: its origination in the Father of Lies

En 1948, Georges Bernanos disparaît en laissant le manuscrit d'un dernier livre, paru de façon posthume : La France contre les robots.

Cette polémique engagée contre la " société des machines " est un cri, un appel très moderne et même futuriste à la construction d'une société où il serait possible de mener une vie digne de l'être humain
