Item description for Prayers and Meditations of St. Anselm with the Proslogion (Penguin Classics) by Anselm of Aosta & Benedicta Ward...

Overview
Anselm of Aosta wrote the majority of his Prayers and Meditations between 1070 and 1080 and created a tradition of intimate, intensely personal prayer that drastically altered the Christian attitude to private devotion. Anselm's ardor, literary brilliance, and scrupulous theology have secured him admiration. And, as Archbishop of Canterbury, his tussle with the early Norman kings earned him a place in secular history as well.

Publishers Description
Mostly written between 1070 and 1080, before he became Archbishop of Canterbury, the prayers and meditations of Anselm of Aosta created a tradition of personal devotional works. The meditations in this title include an exploration of the state of the soul and a lament on the loss of purity, and the Proslogion discusses the mysteries of faith.

Reviews - What do customers think about Prayers and Meditations of St. Anselm with the Proslogion (Penguin Classics)?

The best english translation available  Dec 1, 2000
If you want a chance to experience the devotion in Anselm's prayers and meditations (as it was meant to be experienced), then this is the one (English) translation that you must have (assuming you can't read the original Latin). This book allows one to feel the essence of worship that is necessary in understanding Anselm's thought. I've read some other translations (especially those of the Proslogion), and only this edition can claim to be the prayer that Anselm meant them to be. The brief introduction featured in the book is also worth reading, although it doesn't give all the details, it does allow one to understand why Anselm has been misunderstood by so many, and it gives one a chance to understand him better.
