Walter Silja - Narrator (1919-2011)

Biography of Walter Silja:

Born on 23 April 1919 in Rickenbach, Canton Solothurn. After attending school in Menzingen, she studied literature at the University of Fribourg. She was active in the Catholic youth movement and in 1948 entered the Benedictine Convent of Fahr, where she lived as Sister Maria Hedwig OSB. Silja Walter was a poet of extraordinary versatility. She attained a high degree of recognition for her work, especially as a poet. But she also wrote meditative observations and other prose. Her plays are in the tradition of the sacred folk plays and mystery plays. She also wrote texts for festival performances, oratorios and mystery plays herself. Silja Walter worked intensively with Carl Rütti, collaborating on the Baarer Weihnachtsoratorium (1991), the oratorio Verena, die Quelle (1996), the Solothurner Kreuzweg (2002), the mystery play Haus der neuen Schöpfung (2006) and other works. Her high degree of recognition in literary circles is attested to by the various literary prizes and honours she received, as by her books published by Walter Verlag in Olten and the Verlag der Arche in Zurich. Silja Walter died in the Fahr Convent on 31 January 2011.
