Overview

A fascinating collection of saints' lives, a prophetic critique of modernity, and a surprisingly contemporary take on being Catholic--in particular a Catholic woman--in a sometimes-hostile secular world, from the Nobel Prize-winning author of Kristin Lavransdatter.

Stages on the Road is a series of essays about the relationship between the Church and the modern world. In the spirit of G. K. Chesterton and C. S. Lewis, Undset points to inconsistencies, hypocrisies, and blind spots of the modern secular mindset by introducing readers to the stories of somewhat-forgotten Catholic figures like St. Angela Merici and the English martyrs Margaret Clitherow and Robert Southwell--people who stood fast to their faith in the face of both intellectual and political hostility. Undset tackles such topics as religious freedom, Christian/Muslim relations, and the vocation of women.

Meet the Author

Sigrid Undset (1882–1949), Norwegian novelist, essayist, and Catholic convert, was born in Denmark, the eldest daughter of a Norwegian father and a Danish mother. She converted to Catholicism in 1924 and became a lay Dominican. Undset’s many published works include the novels Mrs. Marta Oulie, The Happy Age, Gunnar’s Daughter, and Kristin Lavransdatter, her most famous work. In 1928, she received the Nobel Prize for Literature, becoming the third woman to be so honored.

Undset was an outspoken critic of Nazism and fled to Brooklyn, New York, upon the German occupation of Norway. She returned to her homeland in 1945 and two years later was awarded Norway’s highest honor, the Grand Cross of the Order of Saint Olav, for her “distinguished literary work and for service to her country.”

Elizabeth Scalia is a writer and blogger best known as “The Anchoress.” She writes at Patheos.com and First Things.
