Product Description
Product Details

Promotional Information

In this unique and profound meditation on loneliness and humanity, Erik Varden, a Trappist monk, uses a range of sources - from Aristophanes and Virgil through Athanasius and Bernard of Clairvaux to Hammarskjoeld, Akhmatova and Makine - to illuminate his themes of Loneliness and Remembrance

About the Author

Dom Erik Varden is Abbot of Mount Saint Bernard Abbey in Leicestershire. Norwegian by birth, he was, before entering religious life, a Fellow of St John's College, Cambridge. He has published several translations and scholarly monographs and is much in demand as a preacher, spiritual director and lecturer.


The Shattering of Loneliness is an extraordinary book: not too long but richly dense; profound in its insights and scholarship yet eminently readable; and though clearly written by a monk happy to be a monk, it has as much relevance to the ordinary Christian as to the Trappist monks in the author's care. * Catholic Herald *
Intimately personal but never self-indulgent, it is at once arresting and challenging, uplifting and reassuring, and profoundly moving ... The richness of this remarkable book is impossible to convey adequately in so few words. No reader will remain unchanged. * Tablet *
Absorbing and fascinating ... It is a book to be read more than once. * Methodist Recorder *
