PhD title: The Bystander as Counterpoint: a practical theological interpretation of interactions with Thomas Merton
Supervisor: Dr David Cheetham
PhD Theology and Religion


This is a theological study of the ways in which readers engage with Thomas Merton, a twentieth-century monastic writer. I hope to offer a constructive answer to the question of how to interpret Merton’s distinctive contribution to corporate theological formation and praxis.
