Product description

Synopsis

A fifth volume in the collection of the journals by Thomas Merton covering the years 1963 to 1965 when Merton moved to Mount Olivet, his hermitage at the Abbey of Gethsemani, and documented the development of political and social activism in the form of Martin Luther King Jnr. and reactions to the Vietnam War.

From the Back Cover

The fifth volume of the acclaimed Journals of Thomas Merton documents the most turbulent period of the sixties and concludes with Merton’s momentous move to his own hermitage.

The sixties were a time of restlessness, inner turmoil, and exuberance for Merton during which he closely followed the careering development of political and social activism – Martin Luther King Jr. and the march on Selma, the Catholic Worker Movement, the Vietnam war, and the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Volume 5 chronicles the approach of Merton’s fiftieth birthday and marks his move to Mount Olivet, his hermitage at the Abbey of Gethsemani, where he was finally able to fully embrace the joys and challenges of solitary life.

‘In the hermitage, one must pray or go to seed. The pretence of prayer will not suffice. Just sitting will not suffice… Solitude puts you with you back to the wall (or your face to it!), and this is good.’ (13 October, 1964)
