J. M. Neale and the Quest for Sobornost


Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses The Lily of Tiflis, the first of Neale’s contributions to John Henry Parker’s ‘Tales Illustrating Church History’, a series of short novels chronicling outstanding or memorable ecclesiastical events from all ages. This novel deals with the martyrdom of the Persians of St Susanna in 466. It depicted human suffering and the psychological difficulties involved in certain moral decisions. Most of Neale’s narrative is concerned with the military campaign, sketches of Georgian scenery and landscape, and Meruan of Tiflis.
