This special edition of The Rule of Saint Benedict was published for the seventy-fifth anniversary of the founding of Liturgical Press. Leonard Doyle's translation of St. Benedict's Rule for Monasteries appeared in 1948 and has remained in print ever since.
Generations of monastics, oblates and others whose lives are influenced by monastic spirituality, have encountered the Rule by means of Doyle's work, which remains by far the most widely known and used English version of the Rule. The traditional dates for the thrice-yearly reading of the Rule are included in this edition.
Simple, clear text and beautiful cover art enhance the value of this edition. The elegance of the page, as crafted by the master eye of renowned liturgical artist and designer Frank Kacmarcik, OblSB, makes it a treasure to read and study as Benedict intended. With ribbon marker.
David A. Zinz5 Stars Out Of 5July 22, 2006David A. ZinzAs an Oblate of Saint Benedict, I have used this translation of the Rule for years. The readings have been divided up so that the Rule may be read 3 times during the year as is customary in the Benedictine tradition. This is a must for those who seek God through the Benedictine way of life. Pax!
