While monasteries and convents of Benedictine nuns flourished throughout Europe during the entire Middle Ages, the amount of writings left to us, in comparison with male Benedictines of the same period, is relatively small. Yet among these writings are many treasures, expressing the life of mystical prayer, remarkable visions and revelations, and an ardent love for God. This weekend will examine the remarkable lives and writings of four mediaeval Benedictine mystics; Hildegard, Elizabeth of Schonae, Gertrude the Great, and Mechtile of Hackeborn.

Presented by various monks of the Monastery. 

The cost includes 2 nights' accommodation at the Monastery Guesthouse, meals and entry into the Museum and Art Gallery.

PLEASE NOTE: online bookings for this study weekend close on Monday 6 July. For booking enquiries after this date please phone the New Norcia Guesthouse on (08) 9654 8002, to ensure accommodation is still available.
