On 1 November 1900, Clara Nadig received a beautiful love letter from the Chur parish priest Leonhard Ragaz. He radios. They will be on the road for almost half a century – together and individually. He became a professor – soon a freelance thinker, teacher, journalist and politician. She became his wife and guardian, as was customary for couples from the 19th century – soon to become one of Switzerland's most influential feminists.
