The Cistercian World: Monastic Writings of the Twelfth Century (Penguin Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Founded in 1098 in Citeaux, France, the Cistercian Order sought a return to strict asceticism and a life of poverty. By the end of the 12th century, there were 530 Cistercian abbeys in Europe, and the abbot St. Bernard had become one of the most influential writers of the period. This book contains his letters, sermons, and other works, as well as biographies of other Cistercians.

Synopsis:

This is an anthology of Cistercian writings from the 12th-century Reformation, by Bernard of Clairvaux, William of St Thierry, Aelfred of Rievaulx and others. By concentrating on texts concerning the Cistercian order, the anthology provides an introduction to medieval monastic spirituality.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 305-[319]).
