Example text

13 It appears that he was an homme à la femme, a man who simply needs the constant echo of women in order to satisfy his pastoral craving for admiration; this is indeed borne out by his enormous consumption of women in the later period of polygamy. It is probably this need for admiration and a craving for originality at all costs that sets him on his course.

As reported by a contemporary, “He broke some rolls in a large dish, poured wine over them, and, after speaking the Lord’s words of communion, told those who wanted the Holy Communion to dig in,” which earned him the nickname “Stutenbernd,” because rolls were called “Stuten” in their language.

The first version dates from 1946 and is entitled Es steht geschrieben (It Is Written). The Last Sunday Viktoria M.
