A voyage with Coleridge and Pope Francis

Many of the key insights of Pope Francis’ radical encyclical on man’s relationship with the natural world are uncannily prefigured in the work of the nineteenth-century poet, critic and theologian Samuel Taylor Coleridge.


The Rev Dr Malcolm Guite. Malcolm is an Anglican priest, a poet, theologian and song-writer. He is Chaplain of Girton College, Cambridge where he also teaches in the Divinity Faculty. His most recent book The Mariner: A Voyage with Samuel Taylor Coleridge was described in The Tablet as a book that may become a classic of Christian spirituality.
