About this title


This annual publishes articles about Thomas Merton and about matters of major concern in his life and work. Its purpose is to continue to develop his message for our times, and to provide a regular outlet for substantial Merton-related scholarship. It includes as regular features reviews, review-essays, a bibliographic survey, interviews and first appearances of unpublished or obscurely published Merton materials, photographs and art.

From the Back Cover:

"Thomas Merton was truly a renaissance man and the wide ranging scholarship on Merton’s life and thought published in The Merton Annual witnesses eloquently to this. It is truly as multifaceted as Thomas Merton himself." – Dr. Paul M Pearson. Director and Archivist, Thomas Merton Center

"These scholarly essays reveal Merton’s developing global concerns. They also reveal his definite disappointment with cultures which are destructive of the particulars of any place, or person... It is also especially appropriate that the unpublished Merton manuscript included here should be an excerpt from his Peace in the Post-Christian Era. Truly, Merton’s love for God made it imperative that he think as widely as possible, indeed globally." – Victor A. Kramer, A Found Editor of The Merton Annual

"Marvelous! The essay included in this volume that explains the Sanskrit terms Madhyamika and Dharmakaya—used by Merton to describe his "enlightenment" just days before his death which "confirms and consoles the pilgrim and the reader with the fulfillment of Merton’s intense longing..." – Gray Henry, Publisher of the Fons Vitae Merton Series (Merton and Sufism; Merton and Hesychasm; Merton and Judaism; and Merton and Buddhism)

"Thomas Merton, monk and author, has entered into legend. The Merton Annual, with its blend of scholarship, witness, interpretation, and review, embodies the need to engage with Merton in his singularity, not as a legend but as a seeker and prophet of our time with whom the grand, precise dialogue continues." – Roger Lipsey, author of The Spiritual in Twentieth-Century Art (Dover Books, reissued 2004)

A note on the cover illustration: Calligraphic drawing by Thomas Merton, dating to the 1960s, in the collection of the Thomas Merton Center, Bellarmine University, Louisville, KY. Reflecting Merton's search in visual art for signs that are true to Christian contemplative experience yet free of restrictive convention, the image suggests a reimagining of levels of inwardness in the human being through a primordial sign that recalls both early Chinese pictographs and tribal art.
