The Holy Rule of St. Benedict

For 1,500 years, the Rule of St. Benedict has guided not only monastic communities of men and women but also individuals and groups in the search for God together. This translation remains close to the Latin as addressed to the original audience and context. An introduction sets the translation in its historical context and discusses its major themes of prudence, humility, and love.
