Thomas Merton on Social Justice

Dr. Norman King, The Stephen Jarislowsky Chair in Religion and Conflict

In light of his Christian monastic background, his growing sense of the social implications of the contemplative life, and his dialogue with Eastern religions, Thomas Merton came to a deepening awareness of the values involved in social issues, and developed a theology of non-violent social justice, which will be explored in this presentation.
