Cassian and the Fathers : initiation into the monastic tradition by Thomas Merton ( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cassian and the Fathers, the initial volume in the series of Novitiate Conferences of Thomas Merton, contains Merton's insights on patristic and monastic figures preceding the time of St. Benedict, above all John Cassian, the most significant bridge between the early desert fathers and the monastic life of the West. They reveal the continuing relevance of their teachings for contemporary monastics and other Christians." "Long visible in his works written for publication, the "public" Merton has recently been complemented by the "interpersonal" Merton disclosed in his correspondence and the "intimate" Merton revealed in his journals. These class notes prepared by Merton for teaching young men beginning their monastic life at the Abbey of Gethsemani cast light on Merton the teacher, novice master, and monk. They provide a privileged standpoint for observing Merton as an integral and important member of his monastic community. While these lectures need to be used critically in evaluating Merton's own perspectives, the dialectical relationship between Merton's public and private statements, including those made during the novitiate classes, makes evident a more complex and richer picture of his monastic and personal identity.

An introduction to Christian mysticism : initiation into the monastic tradition 3 by Thomas Merton ( Book )
5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In these conferences dating from 1961, Thomas Merton provides for his audience of young monks an overview of major themes and figures in the Christian mystical tradition as an integral part of their religious inheritance and a crucial part of their spiritual formation. From Fathers of the church through important medieval theologians to the great Spanish Carmelites, Merton traces such key topics as the integration of theology and spirituality; the importance of "natural contemplation" - recognizing the divine presence in creation; the centrality of apophatic or "dark" contemplation; and the role of spiritual direction in forming mature and balanced contemplatives. In the process he reveals much about the foundations of his own spiritual vision as articulated in such classics as New Seeds of Contemplation."--BOOK JACKET
