Short biography
Literary scholars continue to debate whether Sister Mariana (who was a real person) was the true author of The Love Letters of a Portuguese Nun. Some consider the letters a work of fiction and ascribe authorship to others, including possibly Gabriel-Joseph de La Vergne, comte de Guilleragues (1628–1685).
