Notes:  "Travel into the desert with Thomas Merton as your guide. These eight talks, originally recorded in the 1960s, center on the eremitic mystics in present-day Syria. You'll meet such inspirational saints as Symeon the Stylite, Julian Sabas the Elder, and Aphraates. As you will learn, these complex monks were far ahead of their time. When you listen to Thomas Merton in his own voice, you will open your mind and spirit to the timeless wisdom of the desert."--Container. Introduction by Fr.
