ON BAPTISM AND THE OFFICE OF BISHOPS
Translated by Pauline Matarasso
Softcover - 199pp

Two lengthy letters from the abbot of Clairvaux, St. Bernard, illuminate the transition in theological method in the mid twelfth-century. In his letter to the bishop of Sens on the responsibilities of his office, Bernard articulates his monastic conviction that authority in the Church must be accompanied by contemplative virtues, especially a deeply ingrained humility. He also posits his thoughts on the method of holy Baptism. Place this deeply theological work into your cart or wish list above.
