Hanns-Josef  Ortheil - Moments of Faith


Intense and convincing moments from Hanns-Josef Ortheil's novels and stories

In his autobiographic, contemporary and historical novels, writer Hanns-Josef Ortheil has repeatedly presented moments of faith when the protagonists occupy themselves with snippets of Christian tradition. One time it is about listening experiences in church services, another time he focusses on reading passages in the Bible; but other aspects are also important, such the more profound question of exactly what faith is and how it manifests itself in everyday life.

In this anthology, Hanns-Josef Ortheil presents some such intensive moments from his novels, goes into their cultural backgrounds and explains how they came into being.
