Product Information

Author: Pierre-Yves Emery

Bernard of Clairvaux was a twelfth-century Cistercian monk whose influence extended into many areas of Church life. His monastic reforms emphasized mystical prayer as the foundation of daily observance, bringing the Cistercian order into a position of unprecedented expansion and renown. He fought successfully for acceptance of Innocent II after a disputed papal election, and aggressively countered theological heterodoxy within the Church. Bernard was also a great champion of the Second Crusade and obtained recognition for the Knights Templar as a dedicated order of Christian warriors.

Saint Bernard's most enduring contribution to the Christian Faith is his body of writings, including his letters, homilies, and a variety of theological studies. Perhaps his best-loved works are his collections of sermons, including Homilies in Praise of the Blessed Virgin and Sermons for the Seasons of the Year, which reveal Bernard as an experienced guide for your spiritual journey and resolve the paradox of his varied life: secluded monk and Church leader, man of peace and man of the sword, humble servant and bold reformer—always a dedicated preacher and champion of the Gospel. Let Saint Bernard accompany you on the path to spiritual renewal in Christ.
