Item description for The Way of Humility (Monastic Wisdom Series) by Andre Louf & Lawrence S. Cunningham...

Overview
In addition to his eighty-six Sermons on the Song of Songs and the Sermons on the Liturgical Year, in which he follows the calendar from Advent through autumn, Bernard of Clairvaux composed these 'sermons on various subjects'. His choice and handling of subject matter provides insights into Bernard the abbot more than to Bernard the public figure and renown preacher.

Publishers Description

His incisive study prefaces a collection of primary texts which range from the early desert fathers to Saint Bernard of Clairvaux. The translator has added further information about the author and his other writings as well as a bibliography for further reading.
