THE FIRST LIFE OF BERNARD OF CLAIRVAUX
William of Saint-Thierry, Arnold of Bonneval, and Geoffrey of Auxerre
Softcover - 286pp

"The First Life of Bernard of Clairvaux", traditionally known as the Vita Prima, originated to prepare the case for canonization of Bernard, first abbot of Clairvaux. The work was begun by William of Saint-Thierry, continued by Arnold of Bonneval, and completed by Geoffrey of Auxerre.

This Catholic book contains the first English translation of Recension B, drawn from what is apparently the only manuscript of the work found today in a Cistercian monastery, Mount Saint Bernard Abbey. The introduction begins with the story of how this manuscript came to Mount Saint Bernard, so fixing this translation of the Vita prima within Cistercian life from the twelfth century to today.

A collection of five books written by three authors, this Catholic book will aid you in coming to know one of the greatest saints of the Church, his spirituality, theology and life. Place into the cart or wish list above.
