Paris; nd[1908]: Calmann-Levy. Octavo. iii, 131 pages, illustrated by Ary Renan. French text. . The importance of this work is that it represents Renan's new-found criticism. It represents the conflict between Patrice and the young woman he loves and Cecile who continues to profess the uncritical faith that begins to resurge within the breast of the skeptic who has denied its truth. He sees the naivete of those who wish to do away with evil. Bound by W.H.
