Tibhirine Writings

More than twenty years ago, on May 21st 1996, the world learned of the tragic deaths of seven Trappist monks at Tibhirine, whom the film Of Gods and Men (Des hommes et des dieux) made better known, inviting viewers to ask themselves what lead this community to remain with their neighbors during the heart of those dark years in Algeria.

Since then, the media has continue to draw attention to the "affaire Tibhirine," and to probe the unanswered questions concerning the events surrounding these tragic deaths. At the same time, numerous publications studying the monks and their writings have begun to nourish the spiritual lives of those have turned to listen to the witness offered by the events at the Monastery of Notre Dame de l'Atlas.
