The 'A' in his name represents
Augustin. As described in the book, Augustin was a 'Father Redemptorist'.
The Redemptorists belong to the 'Congregation of the Most Holy
Redeemer' (Congregatio Sanctissimi Redemptoris), a sect within
the Catholic Church, founded in 1732 in Naples. As is mentioned
on the cover Father P. Berthe wrote a book about Garcia Moreno.
Garcia Moreno was a Catholic politician, who twice became president
of Ecuador. In the beginning Garcia Moreno had the intention
to become a priest. He studied theology and received minor orders
and the tonsure. But he became a journalist and later on a politician.
Father Berthe wrote his autobiography, still known today as
an valuable reference book.
Father Berthe often used the Divine Name
'Jehova'. For example in the book called 'XIV Jeremias', published
in the year he passed away, 1907. To be noticed is that on the
front page is written: "with the most praiseworthy approval
of the bishops of Arras, Chambery, Clermont and Viviers".
