Description
 
Peter France (au). Explores the history of hermits & uncovers the truths they found in their solitude. Provides engaging accounts of the lives of famous hermits & hermitic movements -- from the Greek Cynics to the Desert Fathers to more modern seekers such as Thoreau, Thomas Merton, & Robert Lax. Viewed as possessing remarkable moral strength & mystical powers gained through an ascetic existence, hermits have been revered & scorned for their often odd behavior. For the modern hermit, the pursuit of enlightenment involves finding a balance between interacting with society & finding solitude in which to work. Includes sayings & teachings of hermits.
