the younger Nicholas:
Thomas Merton (1915-67) In spite of being a Trappist monk at the Monastery of Our Lady of Gethsemane in Kentucky. Merton was a well-known writer and poet whose works were to give new meaning to the word ' religion '. It was his influential concern for contemporary social issues that were to force his Order and the Catholic Church to take seriously questions of contemporary politics, racial justice, the Vietnam struggle and nuclear armament.
Merlon immersed himself in Oriental religion and Marxist ideology trying, from his own Christian viewpoint, to improve understanding between East and West.
