      The Black Robe is an epistolary novel by famed English writer, Wilkie Collins. The book centers around the misadventures of Lewis Romayne, and is also noted for a perceived anti-Catholic bias (Summary by Mike Zane and Wikipedia). Black Robe is the story of Father Jean Laforge, an idealistic French Jesuit eager to evangelize the Native Americans of seventeenth-century Canada. Moore often rooted his fiction in historical events, and in Black Robe, he made use of the detailed histories of mission activity the Jesuits themselves left in their volumes of Relations.
