The Rule of Benedict - Penguin Classics

The Rule of Benedict - Penguin Classics
White, Carolinne (translator) and St Benedict of Nursia
$17.00

Based on the key precepts of humility, obedience and love, its aim is to create a harmonious and efficient religious community in which individuals can make progress in the Christian virtues and gain eternal life.

Carolinne White's accessible translation is accompanied by an introduction discussing Benedict's teachings, what is known of his life, and the influence and spread of his Rule....
