An Episode Under The Terror Summary
On a winter’s night in 1793, an old woman struggles through the snow as a man follows her in a dark alley in Paris. She reaches a pastry shop, where she receives a box of wafers to be used to celebrate a secret mass. The old lady is a nun and belongs to a banned group of aristocrats, who are hiding in an old house in an impoverished region of Paris. The unknown man, who had followed her back home, knocks at the door. He then hands the priest, who opened the door, a handkerchief stained with blood and marked with the royal crown. The mysterious stranger asks for nothing, other than to take part in the secret mass for the soul of the executed King Louis XVI. The stranger assures the priest and the sisters that they are safe in the house and wishes to return the next year to celebrate another mass, which he does.
