Spellman was at this time the Catholic archbishop of New York. Werfel and Spellman appear to have had a relationship of mutual respect and admiration. Werfel sought Spellman's responses to his novels Embezzled Heaven and The Song of Bernadette; and he and Alma Mahler were received by Spellman at least once.
