Dialogues of the Saints imagines a disparate group of modern pilgrims trying to recover the original meaning of the great commandment to love one another. The brilliant young scholar, Katie de Cordova, announces that the seminal gospel of St. Mark was actually written by St. Peteras daughter-in-law Martha, but was later edited to remove what she calls its feminine perspective. This sets off a chain of events that embroils a well-known Maronite monk, his aging but energetic Patriarch, a female Pentecostal preacher from Georgia, a precocious six-year-old moralist from Stillwater, Minnesota, and a supporting cast of diplomats, educators, lawyers, philanderers and a prostitute named Boobsie-Jo. The story wanders through the foothills of Gnosticism, touching on the priestly politics of the Roman Curia, the faculty politics of a major university, the literary politics of the Swedish Academy, and the sexual politics of several generations of American women.
