The Merton Annual Volume 18 – Monastic Awareness, Liturgy, and Art
“The many pieces gathered here conjoin to reflect both [Merton’s] formation as an artist and his monastic development which parallel movements within Catholic artistic circles during the years Merton lived he Cistercian life (1941-1968).” From the introduction by Victor A. Kramer.
The Merton Annual publishes articles about Thomas Merton and about related matters of major concern to his life and work. Its purpose is to enhance Merton’s reputation as a writer and monk, to continue to develop his message for our times, and to provide a regular outlet for substantial Merton-related scholarship. The Merton Annual includes as regular features, reviews, review-essays, a bibliographic survey, interviews, and first appearances of unpublished or obscurely published Merton materials, photographs and art. Essays about related literary and spiritual matters are also considered.
