                What is it like to spend your time in contemplative stillness? Roy Jenkins explores the life of the hermit, through the experience of two hermits living in Wales today, the Anglican nun Sister Ruth Furneaux and the Catholic priest Father Bruno Healy and through insights provided by Professor Eddie Jones, who is writing a social history of hermits. He asks what the role of the hermit is, and how far the real eremitic life differs from the common preconceptions, as well as finding out how a hermit lives practically day to day.
