Norbert Fabián C̆apek: A Spiritual Journey

Front Cover
Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, 1999 - Biography & Autobiography - 335 pages
This is the true story of an inspiring leader who, during one of the most turbulent periods in modern history, built a religious movement in his native Czechoslovakia that numbered close to 10,000 people. Based on years of research with documents uncovered in the Capek Family library in Prague, Richard Henry draws on Capek's diaries, unfinished autobiography and personal items such as sheet music, scrapbooks and photographs. Capek is an engrossing story of political upheaval, religious freedom, murder, great heroism and loss.
