The Life of Saint Benedict highlights the saint known as the founder of Western monasticism, Benedict of Nursia. The volume begins with an introduction to St. Benedict, and then narrates the events of his life and the writing of the “Rule of Saint Benedict,” which shaped monasticism as we know it today. Describing numerous miracles, visions, and prophecies attributed to the saint, The Life of Saint Benedict also details monastic life, Benedict’s interactions with his brother monks, the miracle at the death of his sister, St. Scholastica. Written in the early medieval period by Gregory the Great, this account of St. Benedict’s life has been a treasured part of the Christian tradition for almost two thousand years.
