Packed with 350 entries and 50 black-and-white illustrations, The Thomas Merton Encyclopedia is the cornerstone guide to the life and thought of one of modern America's leading spiritual and literary thinkers. Written by the founding president and two past presidents of the International Thomas Merton Society, The Thomas Merton Encyclopedia lists its entries in alphabetical order. Entries are divided into three types: book articles, referring to the more than one hundred books from Merton's typewriter; theme articles, which discuss key themes that surface in Merton's writing; and Persons and Places articles, which supply background information on Merton's life and references, both biographical and literary. A "must-have" companion to any serious-minded scholar of Merton's writings.
