Notes:
 
This anthology of Cistercian writings range from the golden period of the 12th century Reformation, by Bernard of Clairvaux, William of St Thierry, Aelfred of Rievaulx and others. By concentrating on texts concerning the Cistercian order, the anthology provides an introduction to medieval monastic spirituality. The texts range from mysticism to questions of monastic organization and architecture, from hagiography to biblical commentary, anecdote and meditation.
