Quick Reference

(1875–1944),

French Catholic writer. He tried to build up a Christian theatre, producing his own plays and working with a company of young RCs which he founded in 1924. Many of his works dealt with the lives of saints and other sacred themes; their deliberate naïvety of tone sought to reproduce the atmosphere of medieval hagiography. His biographies appealed to a wide public.

Subjects: Christianity — Theatre.
