The Life of St David was written around 1095 by Rhigyfarch, and is our main source of knowledge for the lives of both St David (died c. 589) and his mother, Saint Non. The place where Non gave birth to Saint David is now named Capel Non, and is marked by the Chapel of St Non. Close to the ruins of this chapel is her holy well. St David became a renowned preacher, founding monastic settlements and churches in Wales, Brittany and England. He was famed for his pious austerity. “Gwnewch y pethau bychain” or “do the little things” is considered St David’s most famous phrase and reputed to be the last words he spoke before dying.

The Uncontrollability of the World

Hartmut Rosa

15,99 €

Our lives are played out on the border between what we can control and that which lies outside our control. But because we late-modern human beings seek to make the world controllable, we tend to encounter the world as a series of objects that we have to conquer, master or exploit. And precisely because of this, 'life,' the experience of feeling alive and truly encountering the world, always seems to elude us. For Rosa, to encounter the world and achieve resonance with it requires us to be open to that which extends beyond our control.
