Product Description

The life of the saint who founded the Benedictine order, written by a later saint and Pope. The translation is by an anonymous Benedictine nun, and was first printed in 1898.

Benedict of Nursia (Italian: San Benedetto da Norcia) (480 – 547) was a saint from Italy, the founder of Western Christian monasticism, and a rule-giver for monks.

His purpose may be gleaned from his Rule, namely that "Christ may bring us all together to life eternal."

The Rule of Benedict became one of the most influential religious rules in Western Christendom. For this reason Benedict is often called the founder of western Christian monasticism.

Benedict was canonized by Pope Honorius III in the year 1220.

5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible saint. St. Benedict Aug. 10 2015

I never know exactly who Saint Benedict was. By this story of his life I become to know him much better who he was. By his miracles and dedication of his whole life by serving the Lord in the isolated mountains. He had the great power of the Almighty God to cast away demons. That's is the first thing I'm been known about him. He had an incredible Love for who he was serving the only truly God of eternity. Saint Benedict pray and stay with us, Amen.
5.0 out of 5 stars About St.Benedict's faith Dec 11 2014

An inspirational story, comprised of contemporary accounts. It has helped me by his example, inspired me to continue with what I knew is true, it will help you to understand the history of faith which is "none" we believe because we "know" this book is about Saint Benedict's life but also about his faith and his incredible effort and sacrifice to maintain it.
