An allegory in which the world is depicted as a city and man as a pilgrm who after many vicissitudes (taking place in seventeenth century Central Europe) finds God and ends the journey in a revelation of visionary joy. Translated by Count Lutzow at the beginning of the twentieth century.
The book was originally suggested by the artist Dorothea Braby and Sandford intended this a companion volume to Jurgen.
