Carmelite Library


This session includes, for enjoyment and edification, structured readings of parts of his commentaries on Ecclesiastes, Proverbs and Psalms, as well as a biography not a hagiography of Fr Roland, and a necessarily brief introduction to the Bible and the Church.

Roland Murphy O.Carm. (1917-2002) was an American Carmelite and prolific biblical scholar. His youthful study life began at the critical moment when the Catholic Church had just approved pursuit of the historical critical method in reading the Bible. This huge advance in thinking resulted in a remarkable outpouring of work from Roland Murphy, especially on his favourite subject, the Wisdom Literature of the Hebrew Bible.
