QuotationA book has come (from the U. of Minnesota library, borrowed for me by Ray Livingston) La Doctrine de la Creation dans l'Ecole de Chartres. I am really fascinated by these people. I have been trying to read the Timaeus and find it sometimes impossible. Yet what they have made of Plato, these men of Chartres! Also reading the II Book of the Summa Contra Gentiles [St. Thomas Aquinas].
Quotation SourceTurning Toward the World: The Pivotal Years. The Journals of Thomas Merton, Volume 4, 1960-1963.; Edited by Victor A. Kramer. / San Francisco : Harper Collins. 1996, p. 254
