Tjurunga

Tjurunga is a publication of the Benedictine Union of Australia and New Zealand. Michael Casey ocso, describes the original focus of this periodical in his last editorial as follows:

“Initially Tjurunga conceived itself to be a channel of ongoing education whereby readers could catch up with some of the recent studies concerning Benedictine history and spirituality and associated topics. The phrase used was haute vulgarisation; the content would aim at a middle-brow audience among those attached to the Benedictine tradition, with a view to bring them up to speed on what was happening in the world of scholarship. In addition, it was hoped that having a periodical of its own would give the Benedictine Union of Australia and New Zealand a greater sense of identity and common patrimony.”
