MONASTIC EVANGELIZATION IN THE MODERN WORLD
December 15 @ 5:00 pm - December 17 @ 10:00 am
Christian monasticism was almost extinguished during the secularizing frenzy of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic wars that followed. Beginning in the early nineteenth century men and women rediscovered the value and beauty of the monastic tradition and created new Benedictine congregations that revived the monastic practice of evangelization in a variety of new forms. In this workshop, we will consider monastic missionaries, scholars, liturgists, and musicians who renewed the monastic communities we know today, and who offer us unique models of evangelization in our own time.
