The Three Cities Trilogy – Lourdes by Émile Zola

This book describes a five day national pilgrimage to the holy shrine of Lourdes, where miracle cures are hoped for. The central character is a priest, Pierre, whose faith is faltering.

The History of England – Volume 1 Part 1

The History of England - Volume 1 Part 1 by David Hume

The History of England – Volume 1 Part 1 by David Hume

David Hume is one of the great philosophers of the Western intellectual tradition. His philosophical writings earned him lasting fame and renown; his historical writing earned his bread and butter. His “The History of England from the Invasion of Julius Caesar to the Revolution of 1688”, published between 1754 and 1764, was immensely popular and Hume wrote that “the copy-money given me by the booksellers much exceeded any thing formerly known in England; I was become not only independent, but opulent.” The six volume work has had numerous editions and is still in print today. David Hume and Thomas Babington Macaulay have frequently been compared as the premier English historians but we don’t have to choose because Macaulay begins where Hume leaves off.
