Abstract

This thesis explores the Christological focus of the 'the Golden String,' the defining image of Bede Griffiths' spiritual journey while taking into account other images employed in relation to God, the self, and creation itself.

Our exploratory narrative schema sets this metaphor in the wider history of Griffiths' development and places it into the context of his theological articulation of the contemplative vocation and related issues. A key interest is the movement of humankind to a new level of consciousness.
