About The Armed Man
In addition to extracts from the Latin Mass, the text for "The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace" incorporates words from historical and religious sources, including the Islamic call to prayer, the Bible and the Mahabharata. Writers whose words appear in the work include Rudyard Kipling, Alfred Lord Tennyson, and Sankichi Toge, who survived the Hiroshima bombing but died some years later of leukemia.
