Learn from The Founder of Western Monasticism
In partnership with Roman Catholic Books, Lancelot Andrewes Press brings you a classic translation of the Rule of St. Benedict. This hardcover text provides an accessible and scholarly window into the pastoral text of the founder of Western monasticism.
In this book, Abbott McCann provides an edition of the Latin text which will be of service both to the monk in choir and to the general reader. The facing English translation has been carefully revised and evolved over many years of experiment and trial to be at once accurate and readable. Full and helpful notes give convenience to students on all points of difficulty in the Late Latin syntax and vocabulary. To assist the monastic Lector-who by ancient custom must recite the Rule of Prime section by section throughout the year-the appropriate dates are given alongside the text.
