A Time to Keep Silence (1953) is a travel book by British author Patrick Leigh Fermor. It describes Fermor's sojourns in monasteries across Europe, and is praised by William Dalrymple as a "sublime masterpiece". This was an early publication from the Queen Anne Press, a small private press, created in 1951 by Lord Kemsley, proprietor of the Sunday Times. In 1952 Kemsley made Leigh Fermor's friend Ian Fleming its managing director.

I had to read this book for a book group—and absolutely loved it. It's like a little retreat that you can carry around in your pocket. Fermor describes the physical effects of being temporarily secluded in a cloistered monastery rather than the spiritual ones, but even those are very powerful, and they produce a deep effect on the reader. To his great surprise, the only regret that he ever heard from any of the monks was that they waited too long to join.
Unusual in that it was written by an agnostic, it has the beauty of seeing through the eyes of a true outsider. But agnostic though he was, Fermor was a poet with a keen eye and an appreciation for love and beauty that is not sullied by cynicism. My book came via Sweden Post, and is evidently the UK version. It lacks the pompous, bland, and nearsighted introduction by Karen Armstrong (which accompanies the American version). That intro has about the same effect as trying to visit a beautiful cathedral with someone who won't stop talking. This book does not need an introduction.

Another great book by a great travel writer. This is a very quick read, but absolutely stuffed with erudition. For all but the most educated, it wouldn't hurt to read this with Wikipedia as a companion piece. As with his other travel books, the mix of architecture, history, linguistics, and an obvious personal touch lend an air of familiarity which, in the end, help give the impression that you have experienced these things yourself.

I once read a review which stated this book concluded that the vow of silence and other retreats from secular life were not effective or warranted in some circumstances. In my opinion, this conclusion was not reached by the author. The opposite appears to be true - Fermor's return to secular life seemed to be more traumatic than his adjustment period during his first visit. His understanding is remarkable and serves as a good lesson to the casual reader - his hosts honestly believe they are suffering in order to atone for the sins of the world, and they ask for nothing in return.

Fermor's tales of journeys are strongest as a look into lost worlds that were either erased by war or time. In his time among the monastic orders, he acknowledges his limited perceptions and understanding of the silent lives of abbeys. His honesty about the boundaries of his understanding make the essays very readable.

Fermor is an excellent writer, and brings his subjects to life like few others can. He lives boldly, and as a result has excellent fodder for his writing. I've read him before, and I'll read him again.

Great book that is well written using vocabulary that is very unusual to everyday use. A story in fact that reflects on some religious practices not for the fainthearted. The subject matter is probably not for every one but should one wish to enjoy the story telling (based on real life journey), that is true to fact, then this presents a present read.

I'm a big fan of Fermor's writing and this little gem of a book is a departure from the classic travel works he has given us. In this short book, Fermor describes life in several monasteries where silence defines the world of the monk. Fermor stipulates that as a guest in these places he will never achieve the level of faith and monastic practice that the monks do, but he shines a light on their world, giving the reader a glimpse of an existence we've always wondered about but rarely got to know.

This is a very short book, and if you like Fermor's mixture of anachronistic romanticism and incredible historical awareness, you will like it. There is no profound learning, and it is a little sophomoric. But it is an interesting counterpoint to someone like Alain de Bouton, who is in some ways a successor in style.

Beautiful, stunning, my favorite of Fermor's works! His natural exuberance sounds here in a lower register, full of wonder, but also thoughtful reflection on the monastic life. Fermor is sympathetic but not uncritical. His descriptions of architecture are lovely, and best of all are his sketches of the monks themselves. A marvelous invocation of the religious life, mediated for us by a traveller of the world.
