In my opinion it would seem that Wilkie Collins was violently anti-catholic particularly towards the Jesuits who are fanatical in trying to convert people to their faith.
The main characters in the book are Lewis Romayne, Stella Eyrecourt (soon to be his Wife), Bernard Winterton (once nearly married bigamously to the latter) and the odious Father Benwell who will stop at nothing to get hold of Romayne's family home, Vange Abbey, for the church.
This novel is a rather damning portrait of the Catholic Church and in particular the Jesuits.
This was a beautifully crafted piece of literature and one that I will probably re-read again sometime in the future.
It is definitely not P C from a religious perspective. But, who cares?
