Imprint[S.l.] : [s.n.]. 1938
QuotationVery important book-The Humiliated Christ in Russian Thought-from the Library of Congress. More and more impressed by the seminal and prophetic stuff of Russian nineteenth century. If there were something I intended to study I think it would be that. The whole 19th. century grows like a mountain behind us as we move away from it, taking on its true proportions, great, ominous, and pathetic.
Quotation SourceA Search for Solitude: Pursuing the Monk's True Life. The Journals of Thomas Merton, Volume 3, 1952-1960.; Edited by Lawrence S. Cunningham. / San Francisco : Harper Collins. 1996, p. 380
