The Atlas Martyrs

After many long years in the Atlas Mountains – years of faithfulness to the monastic routine of work and prayer; of deepening dialogue with Islam; of peaceful and fruitful coexistence with ordinary Algerian Muslims – Christian de Chergé and his Cistercian community faced death at the hands of Islamist guerrillas. Had extremism and violence triumphed in the end? Their loving confidence in God, movingly retold in a major new film ‘Of Gods and Men’ (released 2010), enabled them to respond with an understanding and forgiveness powerful enough to overcome the forces of evil.
