This classic translation of the correspondence of Bernard is reprinted with a new introduction which takes into account the wealth of scholarship which has appeared in the last forty years. Professor Kienzle discusses the translation of medieval and monastic letter-writing and provides a new chronology and select bibliography.
First published in 1953, James' translation set the standard for readability, accuracy, and verve; 'it is difficult to see how his translation can be improved' 'David N. Bell
Beverly M. Kienzle is the John H. Morison Professor of the Practice in Latin and Romance Languages and lecturer on medieval Christianity at Harvard Divinity School.

Her publications include Hildegard of Bingen: Homilies on the Gospels from Cistercian Publications and Hildegard of Bingen and Her Gospel Homilies: Speaking New Mysteries. Kienzle has also co-edited Hildegard of Bingen's Expositiones euangeliorum and A Handbook on Hildegard of Bingen.
