Books from Hell

The Seminaire de Quebec is a treasure-trove for history lovers and archivists to find out more about the history of the colony. It also holds the key to some information that the Church wanted to keep a secret.

Although the Seminary's library possessed hundreds of thousands of books accessible to its students and priests, many were deemed unreadable, and were labelled with the word "enfer." 

Now, these devilish treasures are being shown to the public in an exhibit at the Musée de l'Amérique francophone. Archivist Pierrette Lafond gave our Julia Page a tour.
