The Sacred Flame, by Selma Lagerlöf


Easter is upon us again, and what better time could there be to repost one of my favourite stories by Selma Lagerlöf? I first recorded and posted “The Sacred Flame” on 18 April 2014. Enjoy – and Happy Easter, everybody…

I’ve never done the math, but I suspect that you’ll find that one Easter story has been written for every one hundred Christmas stories. This holiday weekend, I’ve selected my favourite of all time, Selma Lagerlöf’s “The Sacred Flame” from her 1904 collection of Christ Legends. Enjoy.
