Eliot's conversion is nearly always seen in a vacuum. In fact there were several conversions around the same time. There wasn't a community as such, but there was an atmosphere of commonality, probably more meaningful to Christians of a catholic bent than to others. One such convert was Thomas Merton, a Trappist monk. His book, SEEDS OF CONTEMPLATION, was highly influential.
