Reading Group on The Cloud of Unknowing

 Spiritual Reading Group, Philip Harvey on Ways of Reading ‘The Cloud of Unknowing’, Wednesday 20 September, 10.30am to 12.00pm

You are welcome to attend this session, which will be 'in person' in the Carmelite Library  216 Richardson Street, Middle Park.

‘The Cloud of Unknowing’ is a short medieval guidebook to the practice of contemplation of God. Written in Middle English, the many modernised versions of the text are a testament to the book’s popularity. In this session, held ‘in person’ in the Carmelite Library, we look at some of the sentences in ‘The Cloud’ and how we can use them in our own daily lives. The session is also an opportunity to appreciate the work of two Melburnians, recently departed, who read and wrote with insight about this spiritual classic, the poet Jordie Albiston (1961-2022) and the priest-scholar Austin Cooper (1931-2023).
