オノレ・ドーミエ[マルセイユ, 1808年 - ヴァルモンドワ, 1879年]

新たなる聖アントニウスの誘惑 ちょうどまさにこんなときに、ヴェロンという名の偉大なる巨漢の罪人が、神の恩寵にふれたと思い込んだのだった。新聞稼業は神父生活みたいなもんだった、と顧みて彼は隠者になり、モンマルトルの険しい山また山の懐にある荒れ地へと引きこもった。そこで彼は昼夜を問わずお祈り三昧をつづけて、悔悛のしるしに『コンスティテューショネル』の定期購読者名簿を再読しつづけるという苦行をみずからに課したのだった─食べ物といえばルニョーの練り薬だけで、それもヴェロンはごくたまに、ほんのちょっぴり口にしただけだった。─悪魔は、このいかにもいい子ぶった、思いもよらない宗旨変えにいらいらして、聖ヴェロンを誘惑して屈服させるのに手を変え品を変えしてみたのだが、われらが気高き修道士は、このところ自分にとってずいぶんと魅力的に映っていたいろんなものに、あっぱれ抗う術を心得ていたのだった。みずからヴェロン誘惑に乗り出し『コンスティテューショネル』となってやってきた大魔王サタンは、パリへ戻る道すがら怒り狂っていたらしい。─モンマルトルの隠者は爾来もっとも偉大なる聖人に列せられ、パリジャンの報道関係者の誉れとなって、とくに鼻風邪をひいた不運な人々の嘆願を受けている

There, he spent his days and nights in prayer, and as a means of mortification, imposed upon himself as a penitence the continual re-reading of the list of subscribers to the Constitutionnel. — For his only food, Véron took at long intervals a light fragment of Regnauld pâté. — The Devil, irritated by this edifying yet unexpected conversion employed different strategies to make St. Véron succumb to his temptations, but our noble coenobite knew how to resist those things which until recently had held so many charms for him: Satan, who had taken the form of the Constitutionnel in order come in person to tempt St. Véron, returned to the road for Paris, furious. — The anchorite of Montmartre has, since this time, been placed in the rank of the greatest saints which Parisian journalism honours, and is especially supplicated by the unfortunates who have a head cold.
