Augustine of Hippo and his Monastic Rule

Show Summary Details

Preview

The Rule of Augustine, very likely the oldest monastic rule with western origins, provides daily inspiration for more than 150 Christian communities. In giving an account of Augustine's distinctive contributions to the monastic spirituality of the late Roman world, and in particular of his achievement as a monastic legislator, this book fills a gap in Augustinian studies.

Keywords: Rule of Augustine; monastic spirituality; Christian; late Roman world; monastic legislator; Augustinian studies

Book.  208 pages.
