Critical Study Of The Rule Of Benedict Volume 3


Volume 3 of Adalbert de Vogue’s “A Critical Study of The Rule of St. 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. Benedict was expert organizer, creative liturgist and informed student of human psychology.
