Editorial Reviews

Esther de Waal has gifted us with new and fresh insights into Benedictine spirituality from the Cistercian perspective. She gently and prayerfully explores the Cistercian charism by weaving the strands of her study and reading of the twelfth-century Cistercian mystics with her prayerful reflection on Benedictine values.
The American Benedictine Review

This is an engaging amalgam of architecture, history, biography, and monastic theology, capped with a charming anthology from Cistercian authors, ancient and modern.
