On Monastic Life

The Rule of the Master (with Latin Edition)

Of all the Christian monastic literature available to Benedict, it is The Rule of the Master that left the strongest impact on the shape and structure of Benedict’s Rule. Three times longer than St. Benedict’s Rule, the Regula Magistri establishes every facet—spiritual as well as physical—of the monastic community and its monks. This volume presents the Rule of the Master in Luke Eberle’s English translation as well as Adalbert de Vogüé’s critical Latin edition, with notes.
