Huysmans, Bloy subscribed to a belief in Dolorism, a doctrine affirming the sanctity of suffering, holding that through mystic substitution , the martyrdom of innocents could redeem the transgressions of the guilty. While human history is a record of depravity and sacrilege, Bloy proposes his own text as a correction, removing an overlay of blasphemy and accomplishing the apocalyptic task of uncovering as Revelation.
