A historical novel about the eventful lives of the parents of Erasmus.
The Cloister and The Hearth (1861) is a novel by the English author Charles Reade. Set in the 15th century, it relates the story revolving about the travels of a young scribe and illuminator, Gerard Eliassoen, through several European countries. Often describing the events, people and their practices in minute detail, The Cloister and The Hearth may certainly be considered a fine historical novel. Its main theme is the struggle between man's obligations to family and to Church.
