Charles de Foucauld, moine et savant

Abstract : Charles de Foucauld the scholar, the explorer, the frontier runner, has now become the symbol of the dialog between Christians and Moslems. Charles de Foucauld the ascete, the mystic beatified 89 years after his death. Charles de Foucauld and his mystery, that of a man haunted by melancholy, hatred of oneself, and aspiration to martyrdom... This book focuses on his extreme experience, his eremitic life in the middle of the Sahara, from 1905 to 1916. How did he live? Which were his relationships with his Tuareg neighbours? What place took his scholarly studies on the language of the Tuaregs in his life ?
