Scope and Content


At the time of correspondence, Gregorio Pietro Cardinal Agagianian was Patriarch of Cilicia and of Armenia. He sends his letter and preface for The Living Bread from Beirut in December of 1955. Merton notes in a published letter to Sr. Therese Lentfoehr (The Hidden Ground of Love, p. 222) that Cardinal Agagianian's preface will not appear in the first printing of the book. However, by the first printing in 1956, it seems to have made it in.
