Hermits: the insights of solitude
St. Martin's Press,
1st U.S. ed.
Explores the history of hermits and uncovers the truths they found in their solitude. Provides engaging accounts of the lives of famous hermits and hermitic movements -- from the Greek Cynics to the Desert Fathers to more modern seekers such as Thoreau, Thomas Merton, and Robert Lax. Viewed as possessing remarkable moral strength and mystical powers gained through an ascetic existence, hermits have been revered and scorned for their often odd behavior. For the modern hermit, the pursuit of enlightenment involves finding a balance between interacting with society and finding solitude in which to work. Includes sayings and teachings of hermits.
