This review is from: A Time to Keep Silence (Paperback)
This travelougue of the erudite Mr Leigh Fermor recounts his visits to The Abbey of Wandrille de Fontanelle, Solmes, La Grand Trappe and the rock monasteries of Cappadocia. The author is obviously in this writing not familiar with the grand Abbeys and Monasteries still functioning to-day and so the tone is of gentle introduction and naive wonder which permeats his brief ( and it is very brief)descriptions. An affectionate look at...would best describe the genre.
