Reflections on Foolishness


Iurodstvo means “holy foolishness” - the prophetic tradition of acting and speaking in shocking and unorthodox ways in order to communicate spiritual truths.

Ken Feit (1940–1981) was a Chicago-born poet, performer, and self-proclaimed “itinerant fool.” Relatively unknown, Feit’s writings show him to be one of the most thoughtful practitioners of western iurodstvo.

Collected here is a selection of Feit’s reflections on the role of holy foolishness regarding justice, compassion, and identity.
