A Critical Study of the Rule of Benedict - Vol.1


Product Information

The work of Dom Adalbert de Vogüé, O.S.B. (1924-2011) serves as the basis of all serious study of the Rule of Benedict. In the first
volume of this edition, Vogüé uses literary criticism to show how the Rule of Benedict developed. He establishes the dependence of the Rule of Benedict on the Rule of the Master.

"It is one of the anomalies of modern monastic studies that the great commentary of Adalbert de Vogüé has never been translated into English (or any other language). Of course, the reason is that this is a monumental task. But it is one that Sr. Colleen McGrane has accomplished with real distinction."
