This is the first Hugo Winner from the 1950s that I've read that doesn't clearly read like a sci fi book from the 1950s. The dialog, plot, everything still holds up extremely well today. The themes of innocence, cyclical nature of history, man's hubris, and more all are still as relevant today as when Miller wrote them nearly 70 years ago. Thoroughly enjoyed this one more than I thought I would. I'm finding that I enjoy science fiction centered around organized religion a lot more than I would have expected. ( )

This was a powerful, yet hard story. Ratings Cannot do justice. This book makes you think & feel, though perhaps not what You want to think or feel. It's an important book. ( )

I had heard that this book was utterly depressing and that's why I wanted to read it. In fact, it's not that depressing at all.
The story is basically about the survival of knowledge and the benefits and dangers that entails, postulating a cyclical view of history in which we attain knowledge we are not capable of bearing and which causes our destruction, only to start all over again due to the (misguided, maybe?) attempts to protect that knowledge by a handful of priests.
After reading this, I get where a lot of similar stories have come from over the years (the first thing that comes to mind is the Babylon 5 epilogue episode where they show us snippets of the far future and it turns out the Earth has been blown back to the Dark Ages and only the priests helped the knowledge survive, until a long time later they reclaim their place in the stars). Its religious allegories are pretty clear: the apple of knowledge and all of that imagery.
But what surprised me was that it wasn't entirely depressing. Maybe that would have been true at the time it was written and some people still read it that way. Some people die in the book, and that's ok. But to me, it's a story about hope, about how no matter how much we screw up, we'll eventually rise again and aim to the stars, even if it's a terrible journey there.
That's how I read it, at least. I prefer that reading over the sense that we're just doomed to repeat our mistakes. Maybe we are. But at some point, culture and technology (which are so intertwined most people don't realize the cognitive rearranging the technology performs on us) will evolve so our consciousness goes beyond the self-destructive passions. Maybe then we'll reach for the stars. ( )

The writing was a little off at times, but the narrative was inventive and carried interesting themes with it ( )

One of my favorite sci-fi books. An apocalyptic story about a monk. I've read it a couple of times. ( )

Brother Francis Gerard of Utah might never have discovered the blessed documents, had it not been for the pilgrim with girded loins who appeared during that young novice's Lenten fast in the desert.

There were spaceships again in that century, and the ships were manned by fuzzy impossibilities that walked on two legs and sprouted tufts of hair in unlikely anatomical regions. They were a garrulous kind. They belonged to a race quite capable of admiring its own image in a mirror, and equally capable of cutting its own throat before the alter of some tribal god, such as the deity of Daily Shaving. It was a species which often considered itself to be, basically, a race of divinely inspired tool makers; any intelligent entity from Arcturus would instantly have perceived them to be, basically, a race of impassioned after-dinner speechmakers.
“The closer men came to perfecting for themselves a paradise, the more impatient they seemed to become with it, and with themselves as well. They made a garden of pleasure, and became progressively more miserable with it as it grew into richness and power and beauty; for then, perhaps, it was easier for them to see that something was missing in the garden, some tree or shrub that would not grow. When the world was in darkness and wretchedness, it could believe in perfection and yearn for it. But when the world became bright with reason and riches, it began to sense the narrowness of the needle’s eye, and that rankled for a world no longer willing to believe or yearn. Well, they were going to destroy it again, were they-this garden Earth, civilized and knowing, to be torn apart again that Man might hope again in wretched darkness.” (page 285)
Brother Francis was copying only the body of the text onto new parchment, leaving spaces for the splendid capitals and margins as wide as the text lines. Other craftsmen would fill in riots of colour around his simply inked copy and would construct the pictorial capitals.
Brother Francis found the finest available lambskin and spent several weeks of his spare time at curing it and stretching it and stoning it to a perfect surface, which he eventually bleached to a snowy whiteness.
