While The Book of Memory proceeds from exterior objects to interior realities, The Craft of Thought, in complementary fashion, examines the interior practices of mental prayer and its exterior flowering in various types of literature, art, and architecture. The inner ''crafts'' of the great Fathers and saints brought forth abundant exterior memorials of epochal beauty.

An Eighth Day View:

A companion to Mary Carruthers' earlier study of memory in medieval culture, The Book of Memory, this book, The Craft of Thought, examines medieval monastic meditation as a discipline for making thoughts, and discusses its influence on literature, art, and architecture, deriving examples from a variety of late antique and medieval sources, with excursions into modern architectural memorials. The study emphasizes meditation as an act of literary composition or invention, the techniques of which notably involved both words and making mental "pictures" for thinking and composing.
