Walled About With God
Full Product Description
This unique book, written by cloistered nuns themselves, provides answers to this and many other questions. Far from being an invention of the Middle Ages which was imposed on women by a male-dominated Church and society, enclosure was in fact freely chosen by nuns themselves from the very beginning and only later became an object of canonical legislation. Drawing on the riches of Christian tradition, this book examines enclosure from a biblical, historical, spiritual and theological perspective, showing how it aids the prayer-life and mission of cloistered nuns. The book tackles many of the questions that are often asked of nuns today: what are the origins of cloistered life? Why is the enclosure of nuns stricter than that of monks? What is the nature of the contemplative apostolate in the Church and the world?
