In this book the renowned medievalist G.R. Evans provides a concise introduction to St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153), a figure of towering importance on the twelfth-century monastic and theological scene.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bernard of Clairvaux (Great Medieval Thinkers)?

No problems here  Nov 10, 2007
I've been using a library copy of this book, and it suffers none of the shoddy printing issues mentioned by the previous poster. An attractive volume, all-around.
Shoddy printing  Aug 10, 2003
I can't speak to the content of this book, having only skimmed it in the library, but buyers should be forewarned that it is one of the most shoddily printed books you will ever see. It looks as if it were typeset with an inkjet printer and run off on a photocopier -- both badly in need of new ink cartridges. I understand that there isn't much money to be made in academic publishing, but this is disgraceful. In such a case, it would have been better to publish this exclusively as an e-book, and skip the paper altogether.
