A guide to ‘Markings’ by Dag Hammarskjöld
The Gothenburg Cultural Cooperation Initiative within the Church of Sweden sought to draw attention to Dag Hammarskjöld’s classic book ‘Markings’. Vägen valde dig/The Way Chose You contains texts by Archbishop Emeritus KG Hammar, meditations – and contemplating texts, reflections written by five co-writers; Monica Getz, Paolo Lembo, Roger Lipsey, Ismail Seralgeldin and Gunnar Stålsett. It also includes interviews with Ingrid Betancourt and Patti Smith.
This translation was prepared on behalf of the publisher, and involved significant background research on the original work by Hammarskjöld.
