And Her Words Being Made Flesh: Thomas Merton & Holy Wisdom
We shall meditate together upon figures of "Holy Wisdom" (actually and virtually) as they appear in Merton's maturing religious imagination. These epiphanies of "the feminine" give birth to expansive images of Merton's "self" that embody him in God. Participants will best prepare for our symposium by reading my exhibition of this development in "The Presence of Hagia Sophia [Holy Wisdom] in Thomas Merton's Journals, Poetry, Drawings, and Dreams."
Jonathan Montaldo has edited or coedited many volumes of Merton’s writing, including The Intimate Merton, Dialogues with Silence, and A Year with Thomas Merton. He presents retreats internationally based on Merton’s witness to contemplative living.
