Grey Eminence

320 pages

The life of Father Joseph, Cardinal Richelieu's aide, was a monstrous paradox. After spending his days directing operations on the battlefield Father Joseph would pass the night in prayer, or in composing spiritual guidance for the nuns in his care. He was an aspirant to sainthood, a practising mystic, yet his ruthless exercise of power succeeded in prolonging the Thirty Years War, with all its unspeakable horrors. In his masterful biography, Huxley explores how a religious man could lead such a life and how an individual could reconcile the seemingly opposing moral systems of religion and politics.

"'A penetrating and vivid biography' Sunday Times"
