Agnes Günther


German writer whose only book, the romantic novel Die Heilige und ihr Narr (The Saint and Her Fool), has achieved almost legendary success, having been published in more than 140 editions, with the number of printed copies having long exceeded the million mark, and the story adapted into several film versions. The book was first published posthumously in 1913.

Agnes Breuning was the daughter of a German merchant banker and his English wife. She attended schools in Geneva and London. In 1887 she married the theologian Rudolf Günther, with whom she had two sons. From 1891 to 1906, her husband was the parish priest of Langenburg, a small Hohenlohe town above the Jagst with a castle, and the House of the princes of Hohenlohe-Langenburg. She followed her husband to Marburg in 1906, where he was appointed professor of church art in 1907. On 16 February 1911 she died at age 47 of a lung disease after a long illness.
