Regular price $49.95 USD
Regular price Sale price $49.95 USD
The work of Adalbert de Vogue, OSB (1924 2011) serves as the basis of all serious study of the Rule of Benedict. this third volume in the series "A Critical Study of The Rule of Benedict" interprets The Rule, especially facets of monastic life that secular readers might find unimportant such as prayer regimen, psalmody, correction of faults, and everyday routines like sleeping arrangements. This meticulous scholarship in an accessible translation by Benedictine Sister Colleen Maura McGrane traces how Benedict departed from earlier Rules and explains why, more than 1,500 years later, monasteries still follow these practices.
