The Bloody Nun by Charles Nodier, translated by Gilbert Alter-Gilbert

This post now resides on my other site 50 Watts:


  1. I do believe this story was revisited in the book The Monk by Mathew Lewis from 1796? (http://www.litgothic.com/Authors/lewis.html)

    If I recall correctly, even the names are the same!

  2. I thought it seemed very familiar. (I was thinking I had read something like it by Hoffmann.) Let me see if Gilbert knows the story.
