    Sixty years ago today, on 25 July 1960, Brother Roger, of the
    Community of the Resurrection, spoke on "Pilgrims of the Absolute" at
    the first conference of the Anglican Students Federation of South
    Africa (ASF), held at Modderpoort in the Free State. It made such an
    impression that he was asked to speak the following year on "More
    Pilgrims of the Absolute". Here is a combined version of both papers


    For me, and for most of the others present, it was our first
    introduction to Beat Generation literature.
