The Rule of Saint Benedict (Latin: Regula Benedicti) is a book of precepts written by Benedict of Nursia (c. AD –) for monks living communally under the authority of an abbot. The spirit of Saint Benedict's Rule is summed up in the motto of the Benedictine Confederation: pax ("peace") and the traditional ora et labora ("pray and work")/5(22).

Written in the 6th century this short book gives the details of how Saint Benedict felt a Monastary should be run. It gives details on admittance to the Monastic life, the choosing of an Abbot to oversee the life of the Monastary and provide guidance to the Monks who reside there/5(45).

As prepared by the Benedictine monk and priest Timothy Fry, this translation of The Rule of St. Benedict can be a life-transforming book. With a new Preface by Thomas Moore, author of The Care of the Soul.

"God is our home but many of us have strayed from our native land.4/5. Almost all we know about St Benedict comes from St Gregory the Great's Dialogues, where he says that Benedict, vir Dei benedictus, the blessed man of God, 'wrote a Rule for monks that is remarkable for its discretion and its clarity of language' (Dialogues, B ch.

36) Although the original manuscript of the Rule (often referred to by its initials, RB) has been lost, the Codex San GallensisSt. Benedicts rule for monks book the early. St Benedict lived in the 5th century, and wrote his famous Rule as a practical guide for abbots and brother monks living together in a monastic community.

It is a short book, consisting of 73 chapters (no more than paragraphs), and sets out St Benedict's vision of how the values of the gospel can be lived out in a community. Saint Benedict's fifth-century guide to humility offers the antidote to the epidemic of stress and depression overwhelming modern young adults.

But the language of The Rule by Saint Benedict is medieval, and its most passionate advocates are cloistered monks and nuns. How then does this ancient wisdom translate into advice for ordinary people?/5(). The Rule of St. Benedict 3 dislike they esteem unlawful.

And the fourth kind is that of the monks called Girovagi, who are all their lives guests for three or four days at a time in the different groups of cells through the various provinces.

Always wanderers and never settled, they are slaves to their own pleasures and the snares. Benedict was a devout Italian Christian who became a monk at the age of 20, wishing to withdraw from the world after he visited Rome and was shocked by how immoral life in the Holy City had become.

He founded his own monastery in The Benedictine Rule is strict—its main theme being absolute obedience to the Abbot. Benedict wrote a rule for monks to live by that would be "nothing harsh, nothing burdensome." [NOTE: Benedict's rule reflects the Roman Catholic teaching that salvation is based upon faith in Christ and the good works of the believer.] "Live in fear of judgment day and have a great horror of hell" (Chapter )/5(89).

Benedict’s Rule as a major set of regulations was responsible for their growth and success. It’s a manual on how to establish and run a monastery. It was an established form that was used for the following five hundred years by thousands of monasteries that were established until the twelfth Century.4/5.

A monastic rule of life might seem an unlikely bestseller but the Rule of St Benedict was almost certainly the most-read book outside of the Bible for five centuries around AD.

In this kindle version, it is preserved in solid English, with a guide to reading it day by day/5(76). Benedictines follow the Rule, which St. Benedict wrote for monks e arly in the 6th century. Preferring noth ing whatever to Christ (RB ), seeking to live the Gospel in a radical way, they are gathered in community, committed to the brotherhood by a promise of stability in chaste love and led in the way of conversion by the guidance of a superior to whom they promise obedience.
