Thomas Merton in Rome

July 3 – July 12, 2012

In this ten-day program, we will visit the places in and around Rome which Merton visited, read his accounts of those visits, and discuss the later parts of his life to which they point. We will then consider the essential elements of his continuing legacy as it pertains to our own time, viewing it both from a North American and a European perspective.

Program leaders:
