'Leclercq, Jean, Dom, O.S.B., 1911-1993'

Abbot Jean Leclercq; Dom Jean Leclercq, Dom; Fr. Jean Leclercq, Fr.

Dom Jean Leclercq was a Benedictine priest, prolific writer and scholar of the history of monasticism. Born in France, he joined the Abbey of Clervaux in Luxembourg. He first came into contact with Merton concerning the history of the Trappists. Later, during the changes occurring within the Catholic Church before and after the Second Vatican Council, they carry on a crucial dialog on the role and future of monasticism.
