Sealed in Stone
Introduction by Alberto Moravia
Translated by Arthur Bierman


From inside her cell in the wall of the Cemetery of the Holy Innocents, Alix, a young Parisian recluse, observes a tumultuous world of thieves and scoundrels, rebels, heretics, and pilgrims. Set during the Hundred Year's War and based on the historical figure of Alix la Bourgotte, Sealed in Stone, traces the intersecting lives of a vagabond Turkish sailor, a Bohemian intellectual, the amazing Alix, and a young rebel from Lombardy who finds himself powerfully drawn to her.

"Toni Maraini's Sealed in Stone, an allegorical novel set in the heart of medieval Paris, radiantly portrays the triumph of the soul over the darkness of existence. An extraordinary achievement." —Lucia A. Blackstone

". . . a strange and necessary novel." —Alberto Moravia
