Availability: In Stock

       Thomas Merton's two series of Pre-Benedictine Monasticism conferences form both a supplement and a sequel to Cassian and the Fathers, the first volume of Merton's conferences for novices to be published in the Monastic Wisdom series.

Part One not only includes fresh insights on such leaders of early monasticism as Anthony, Pachomius, Basil, and Cassian, but also considers long overlooked key figures like Martin of Tours, Shenoute of Atripe, Melania the Younger, and the pilgrim nun Egeria. In Part Two, Merton, writing at a time when little attention was generally given to these significant but neglected sources, extends his investigations of early monastic life to the Syriac tradition. These conferences, or lectures, edited from Merton's own typescripts, make available his keen observations on the earliest phases of Christian monasticism, and also provide important background material for a number of his essays.
