Contemplation in a world of action by Thomas Merton( Book )

12 editions published between 1971 and 1980 in English and French and held by 959 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The spiritual and psychological insights of these essays were nurtured in a monastic milieu, but their issues are universally human. Merton lays a foundation for personal growth and transformation through fidelity to "our own truth and inner being." Our desire and need to attain "a fully human and personal identity" is the focus of Merton's concern. The republication of this classic in a newly restored, corrected edition is the first of Gethsemani Studies, a series of books that explores, through the twin perspectives of psychology and religion, the dynamics and depths of being fully human
Monks and love in twelfth-century France : psycho-historical essays by Jean Leclercq( Book )

11 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a new attempt to study the connections between medieval secular love literature and monastic doctrine on divine love. The enquiry proceeds from the fact that, in the twelfth century, religious houses were no longer recruiting among children, but among young adults, mostly noble. whose experience was mainly of court and castle life, the warlike activities of chivalry, and courtly literature. These recruits, with their new psychology, made use of the images and ways of expression received from their former life style and from the love poetry of the Song of Songs and Ovid. Monks and lay people belonged to the same society. What did each milieu receive from the other? What did the Christian community receive from the Jewish communities? In Champagne, living together in a small area, Marie de France, Heloise, Rashi's disciples, Bernard of Clairvaux, Chrétien de Troyes and their circles, all exchanged texts and ideas. These facts give us new insights on their emotions, their symbols, their views on human and divine love, and the use they made of feminine imagery in expressing them. Among these men and women who become more alive for us, the central figure is that of St. Bernard, who appears in his fully human dimensions." -- Publisher's description

Survival or prophecy? : the letters of Thomas Merton and Jean Leclercq ; edited by Patrick Hart ; foreword by Rembert G. Weakland by Thomas Merton( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Merton, the American Trappist monk who wrote The Seven Storey Mountain, spent his literary career in a cloistered monastery in Kentucky. His great counterpart, the French Benedictine monk Jean Leclercq, traveled relentlessly to and from monasteries world-wide, trying to bring about a long-needed reform and renewal of Catholic religious life." "Their correspondence over twenty years is a record of the common yearnings of two holy men. "What is a monk?" is the question at the center of their exchange, and in these letters they answer it with great aplomb, touching on the role of ancient texts and modern conveniences; the advantages of hermit life and community life; the fierce Catholicism of the monastic past and the new openness to the approaches of other traditions; the monastery's impulse toward survival and the monk's calling to prophecy. Full of learning, human insight, and self-deprecating wit, these letters capture the excitement of the Catholic Church in the era of the Second Vatican Council - and the perennial appeal of the life of monastic solitude."--Jacket
