Christian Mysticism and the Monastic Life
Available for purchase as part of Hartley Classics Volume 1
The serenity of the monastic life is beautifully illustrated in this film through words handed down from the great Christian mystics, through music, and through exquisite photography of awe-inspiring cathedrals and monasteries in Europe and North America.
Scenes in Christian Mysticism and the Monastic Life of monks gardening, milking cows, and in solemn chapel prayer illustrate in a vivid way the belief that contemplation and work are paths to God.
"It's a perfectly beautiful film, imparting the peace and passion of the Man of God. It provides breathtaking views of Europe's massive cathedrals and the great monasteries of both Europe and America - A lovely experience".
