St. Benedict of Nursia lived in a tumultuous era. He witnessed the beginnings of the collapse of the Roman Empire and civilization as it was then known. Out of this atmosphere of chaos, he was able to set down the timeless wisdom of his Rule for Monks. Cardinal Hume brings out the ancient and ageless wisdom of the Father of Western Monasticism and Patron of Europe in the essays included in this book.
