The Awful Disclosures of Maria Monk

This book has the unusual distinction of
never having been out of print since it
was first published in 1836.
Although purporting to be a factual tale, it was
a hoax aimed at discrediting the Catholic
Church and, in addition, generating a handsome
profit for the authors and original publishers,
due to the highly salacious nature of
the story.
After being initiated at the Hôtel Dieu convent,
Maria Monk alleges that the nuns were
required to perform sexual acts with the priests
from the adjacent seminary. In the event of a
nun becoming pregnant, the child was baptised,
then suffocated before being thrown into a limefilled
pit in the cellar. She relates all of the
bizarre and highly humiliating penances that the
nuns had to endure for the slightest indiscretions
