Product Description

Maurus serves in Gregory the Great's Life of Saint Benedict as an example of the monastic virtues Benedict taught. As Carolingian monasteries adopted the Benedictine Rule in the ninth century, Maurus reappears again, this time as the holy successor to the holy lawgiver. A Life and Little Book of Miracles-purportedly ancient-extended his cult throughout France. Translated here and presented in their historical context, these two early medieval works present Maurus the apostle of French monasticism.
John B. Wickstrom is Professor of History at Kalamazoo College.
