On the hundredth anniversary of the birth of R. S. Thomas, one of the great modern poets of spiritual quest, it is fitting that two of the most eminent churchmen of today – Dr Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge and former Archbishop of Canterbury, and Dr Barry Morgan, Archbishop of Wales – consider the precious legacy of his vision.
