After many long years in the Atlas Mountains - years of faithfulness to the monastic routine of work and prayer; of deepening dialogue with Islam; of peaceful and fruitful co-existence with ordinary Algerian Muslims - Christian de Chergé and his Cistercian community faced death at the hands of Islamist guerrillas. Did extremism and violence triumph in the end? Their loving confidence in God, now movingly retold in a major new film 'Of Gods and Men' (Winner of the Grand Prix at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival), enabled them to respond with an understanding and forgiveness powerful enough to overcome the forces of evil.
