Abstract

Following on my recent presentation of the Catholic priest in some work by William Trevor, I have decided to follow up with a few articles for Spirituality dealing with what I consider to be some of the more insightful priestly portrayals that I have come across in world literature. For the first example, one must travel a long distance to find an author who has been dubbed the Japanese Graham Greene, Shusaku Endo (1923-1976). The novel we will be concentrating on is the writer's 1966 masterpiece, Silence.
