DESCRIPTION:

Thomas Merton and Dorothy Day are arguably the most important American Catholics (Christians) of the 20th century. Their writings and controversial lifestyles challenged the traditional and fundamental doctrines and beliefs of the Church–and the larger Christian world. Although contemporaries, their separate and unique lives addressed a greater question: “How to live a Christian Life in the Modern World?” Through a seminar and discussion format, an intense and sometimes very personal exploration of these two spiritual giants will be explored. Weekly readings for each class period will be provided through email.
