PATRICK BARRY was formerly Abbot of Ampleforth and now resides in the US. RICHARD YEO is Abbot of Downside and Abbot President of the English Benedictine Congregation. KATHLEEN NORRIS wrote the bestselling A Cloister Walk and is a Benedictine oblate.
We should be grateful to Patrick Barry, a former Abbot of Ampleforth, for making this new translation of the Rule of St Benedict available to us, and to the publishers for its attractive presentation. Instead of the traditional numbering of each sentence, the text is presented in paragraphs meant, in the words of the short introduction, to encourage it to "be read holistically, as an experience of sacred reading which is close to prayer or meditation".
New readers will find this style accessible and discover that we can still learn much from St Benedict's grasp of the human psyche. Those familiar with earlier translations will be grateful for the freshness of the language found here." Esther De Waal, TLS, 13 January 2006.
