Prayer: Learning from the past
Wk 1 TT: 23/04/2018
Alicia Smith is a 2nd year DPhil at Queen’s. She works on medieval texts for solitary religious recluses, though she claims, “I’m not one myself quite yet!”. Her project aims to describe the ideals and practices that these recluses used to structure their very disciplined and rich prayer lives, and to consider how these practices draw on the felt reality of the Church universal across time.
