The Song of Bernadette is a remarkable literary masterpiece by Austrian-Jewish author Franz Werfel, offering a powerful testament to the transcending power of faith. It follows the true story of Bernadette Soubirous and her miraculous visions at Lourdes in 1858, depicting how the simple peasant girl’s faith changed a town - and indeed history - forever.
Inspired by his experience hiding from the Nazis in Lourdes much later, Werfel crafted this passionate masterwork to show the deep spiritual connection everyone can feel regardless of religious background or belief system. From subsequent miracles to profound conversations on personal healing, The Song of Bernadette captures Werfel’s awe and reverence for Catholicism. Through dramatic dialogue and intensely vivid narration, this classic work takes readers on a journey that stirs hearts, invigorates minds, and encourages thoughtful reflections upon faith through complex characters intertwining stories.
