Authoritative Commentary Apr 2, 2008
There are many commentaries on the Rule of St. Benedict, but few as authoriative as this one -- so much so that this is essentially required reading for all postulants and young aspiring monks at Fontgombault and their daughterhouse at Clear Creek. The commentary is quite orhtodox, and transmits the spirit of St. Benedict faithfully, without adding too much novelty to the text. It remains a commentary as such, as opposed to the more liberal commentaries in existence today.
