Product Description

Product Description

NOTE: This edition has a linked "Table of Contents" and has been beautifully formatted (searchable and interlinked) to work on your Amazon e-book reader, Amazon Desktop Reader and your ipod e-book reader.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars St Benedict the patron of Europe 26 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
The book is very good and the author a saint also but it puts too much stress of the prolific miracles which take up most of the book and make him unlikely to be taken as a role model.

5.0 out of 5 stars St Benedict and Ste Therese - A Comparison 4 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
I have received "The Complete St Therese" / The Story of a Soul"; but NOT "The Life of .....St Benedict". You know my "new" email address (since 10 March 13); it may be material that since that date I have had a Virgin hub.

PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS PROBLEM.
also, COULD YOU PLEASE CONVERT MY SAMPLE OF THE RULE OF ST BENEDICT TO THE FULL VERSION.

4.0 out of 5 stars couple of typos 2 May 2013

It's a classic so I won't comment on the work. I didn't give full stars as there are few typos. Happy to amend if corrections are made.

5.0 out of 5 stars St Benedict and Milarepa 19 Sep 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
What a wonderful Saint. I am a Buddhist and he is totally similar to Milarepa, a great Tibetan Saint of the 10th century. Both lived in caves, both focused on the basics and both transformed demons into either spiritual beings or told them to improve their ways. Something a little different is Buddhists see bad spirits as sentient beings who can be saved if they understand the error of their ways.

It was not what I expected to be reading. While I still learned something new, I had hoped to find a message for today in this book.

Two ways, Peter, we are carried out of ourselves: for either by sinfulness of thought we fall beneath ourselves, or by the grace of contemplation we are raised above ourselves. &quote;

&quote;
thus by the wounds of his flesh he cured those of his soul, by turning pleasure into pain; and by the vehemence of outward torments he extinguished the unlawful flame which burnt within overcoming sin by changing the fire. After which time, as he himself related to his disciples, he was so free from the like temptation, that he never felt any such motion. &quote;

In my opinion, Peter, a bad community may be tolerated where there are found at least some good which may be helped. But where there is no benefit to be expected of any good, labour is many times lost upon the bad. &quote;
