Walled About With God
The History and Spirituality of Enclosure for Cloistered Nuns
Dom Jean Prou OSB and the Benedictine nuns of the Solesmes Congregation
Translated by Br David Hayes
The enclosure of nuns is a sign of contradiction in today's world. What are the origins of cloistered life? Written by cloistered women, this unique book examines the question from a biblical, historical, spiritual and theological perspective, showing that the roots of enclosure plunge into the very origins of religious life of both men and women in the early Church, and examines forms of enclosure chosen and developed by women themselves.
