Product Description

Andreé Louf's probing essay on the nature of humility revisions this fundamental Christian virtue away from the misunderstanding of both the scholastic tradition and its modern counterparts to locate humility in the ancient sources of the monastic tradition. His incisive study prefaces a collection of primary texts which range from the early desert fathers to Saint Bernard of Clairvaux.
