Thomas Merton on the Search for Wholeness
Date: April 2018
Duration: 2 hours 1 minutes
Study a premier Jewish writer of the 20th century with one of the century's most important Catholic authors.
This digitally remastered recording is part of Thomas Merton's spoken word legacy, and it presents his voice at its most spiritually edifying. Originally recorded in February of 1968 at the Abbey of Our Lady of Gethsemani, Thomas Merton on The Mystical Life and Martin Buber unpacks Buber's resonant Hasidic tales one at a time in a discussion-heavy class setting.
Inviting his audience to compare Buber with St. Bernard, Merton sets the stage to draw compelling connections between different faith traditions. This talk was delivered to
Merton's fellow monks in the last year of his life, when the mystic was at the peak of his intellectual and spiritual powers.
