Lewis, Matthew Gregory: The Monk, v.1, 7 March 2008.
A Gothic horror novel, considered extremely shocking in the late 18th century. It contains sex, violence and supernatural elements.
“Ambrosio, celebrated preacher of Madrid, is a monk with no time for human errors. Entirely devoted to his faith, he knows no sin or vice, and is widely admired until his vocation is tested by Mathilda. A devotee of perversion, and a sorceress lacking the slightest morality, she will initiate poor Ambrosio into all that he has previously condemned...”
I have left the original spelling and unusual capitalization intact, apart from correcting a few obvous typos and have restored italics.
