Book Description Luxor Press, London, 1971. Paperback. Condition: New. First Thus. Anti-catholic novel based on the confessions of an abused nun in the Hotel Dieu convent in Montreal, Canada. "The double birching was long and excruciating. I lost control of myself during the punishment with the first rod, as many girls must have done, the permanent dark stain in the leather on the side of the horse attested to this fact, although none of the novices ever admitted it. During the punishment with the second rod I fainted a number of times, but the nuns revived me each time to ensure I felt every stroke. Afterwards, I was made to sit still on a hard wooden bench for four long hours under the watchful eye of the nun I had offended." This book has the unusual distinction of never having been out of print since it was first published in 1836. Although purporting to be a factual tale, it was a hoax aimed at discrediting the Catholic Church and, in addition, generating a handsome profit for the authors and original publishers, due to the highly salacious nature of the story. After being initiated at the Hotel Dieu convent, Maria Monk alleges that the nuns were required to perform sexual acts with the priests from the adjacent seminary. In the event of a nun becoming pregnant, the child was baptised, then suffocated before being thrown into a lime-filled pit in the cellar. She relates all of the bizarre and highly humiliating penances that the nuns had to endure for the slightest indiscretions. The curious case of Cadiere versus Girard was one of the greatest and most vehemently discussed scandals of the early eighteenth century. It tells the story of Catharine Cadiere and her relationship with a Roman Catholic priest, who frequent flogged her in an ongoing sexual relationship in the south of France.
