Cassian and the Fathers : initiation into the monastic tradition by Thomas Merton( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 153 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 )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 108 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."--Jacket

Early essays, 1947-1952 by Thomas Merton( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume gathers together twelve essays that Thomas Merton wrote for various journals between 1947 and 1952, the years that saw the publication of his best-selling autobiography The Seven Storey Mountain, his ordination to the priesthood, and his initial appointment as spiritual and intellectual guide of the young monks at the Abbey of Gethsemani. The essays, most of which have never been reprinted, focus above all on aspects of the contemplative life but also consider the spiritual dimensions of literature and the social implications of Christian life. Issued to coincide with the one hundredth anniversary of his birth, this collection brings to fruition at long last Merton's own original plan of publishing these essays as a group and so makes available a previously little recognized and underutilized resource for understanding and appreciating a crucial transitional phase in his life as both monk and writer.

Journal by Henry David Thoreau( Book )

in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In hundreds of dated entries, Thoreau reported on the natural and social world as he saw it. His interest ranged over an incredibly wide area: birds and flowers, Greek classics, writing as an art, mammals, early Americana, Oriental literature, grasses; and his Journal includes them all. We can read his views on slavery and on the problem of the individual's relation to the State, views that every day become more pertinent. Furthermore, the Journal is still an untapped mine of information on mid-19th century American word usage, folklore, regional proverbs and social mores."--Jacket

Charter, customs, and constitutions of the Cistercians : initiation into the monastic tradition 7 by Thomas Merton( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As master of novices for ten years (1955-1965) at the Cistercian Abbey of Our Lady of Gethsemani in Kentucky, Thomas Merton was responsible for the spiritual formation of young men preparing for monastic profession. In this volume, three related sets of Merton's conferences on ancient and contemporary documents governing the lives of the monks are published for the first time: on the Carta Caritatis, or Charter of Charity, the foundational document of the Order of Cîteaux on the Consuetudines, the twelfth-century collection of customs and regulations of the Order on the twentieth-century Constitutions of the Order, the basic rules by which Merton and his students actually lived at the time These conferences form an essential part of the overall picture of Cistercian monastic life that Merton provided as part of his project of "initiation into the monastic tradition" that is evident in the broad variety of courses that he put together and taught over the period of his mastership. As Abbot John Eudes Bamberger, ocso, himself a former student of Merton, notes in his preface to this volume, "The texts presented in this present book eventually gave rise to the Cistercian way of spiritual living that continues to contribute to the Church's witness in this new millennium. This publication is a witness to the process of transformation that ensures the continuity of the Catholic monastic tradition that witnesses to the God who, as Saint Augustine observed is 'ever old and ever new.'""--
