Reviews - What do customers think about Stephen Harding: A Biographical Sketch and Texts (Cistercian Studies Series)?

well done  Dec 27, 2008
This short book concerning the live of the third abbot of Citeaux provides a lot of reliable information about Stephen Harding and the early years of the later Ordo Cisterciensis. But Claudio Stercal does even more than sifting all the available sources "that can with certainty be attributed to Stephen Harding" and combining them to a short biography with success - he critically reviews quite a lot of the biographical studies on Stephen Harding published in the last centuries.
Besides the "biographical sketch" the author and the translator provide the print of five texts "considered as having been written by Stephen Harding" in latin and english language.
At the end of the book the author gives a list of used sources and a detailed bibliography in chronological order and afterwards in alphabetical order. An index of names (mentioned historical persons and cited historians) completes the book.

Although it does not count more than 158 pages, it is an useful, substantial and stimulating study.
