‘God is ripening’ – The spirituality of ‘The Book of Hours’

03/04/2019 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Patrick Woodhouse

In The Book of Hours, the poet Rainer Maria Rilke explored as a young man his understandings of what makes for an authentic spiritual life.  The book was hugely influential in the thinking and writing of the young Jewish diarist Etty Hillesum, and contributed significantly to her understandings of God, enabling her to go on believing and finding life meaningful in the face of the horrors of the Holocaust.

On this study day we shall explore who Rilke was, what led him to write The Book of Hours, and explore some of the key themes in the poems which have a remarkable contemporary resonance and can inspire and illuminate our own contemplative practice in our own troubled times.

Patrick Woodhouse is a writer and Anglican priest. He was, for thirteen years, a Canon of Wells Cathedral. He is the author of ‘Etty Hillesum, a Life Transformed’ and ‘Life in the Psalms, Contemporary Meaning in Ancient Texts’.

This day will take place on Wednesday 3 April, 10am until 4pm
