Scope and Content

In these intramural letters, Merton and, at that time, fellow monk of Gethsemani, Bamberger, exchange thoughts about community life, the admission of new novices, and about each others writing. In some of these letters, Merton expresses problems he has with some of the monks serving as typists who do not agree with his work, and he questions whether the Gethsemani community understands or benefits from some of the Sunday conferences he is giving.

Biography

Dom John Eudes Bamberger stepped down as abbot of the Abbey of Our Lady of the Genesee in 2001. He came to Gethsemani in 1951 after having read The Seven Storey Mountain in the navy. He was sent to Washington, D.C., for studies in the psychiatric field and later helped Merton and Fr. Matthew Kelty in screening new applicants to the novitiate.
