Pamphlets on Monastic Spirituality
I have written several works on the subject of Christian spirituality, specialising in the English medieval mystics. These were first published by The Chapter (ed. Clare Anderson), a quarterly review which ran in the nineties, dedicated to fostering the spirit of St Benedict.
