The Rule of St Benedict
Read by Jonathan Booth
Written in 516, The Rule of Saint Benedict for monastic living has been soul-inspiring for a countless number of people – not only monks, nuns and priests, but also a considerable number of lay people. It covers matters of doctrine, the structure of the monastery as the House of God, and observance of the Divine Office. The Rule gives a fascinating insight into the standards and behaviour expected of monks in their everyday lives. It remains notable for embodying the concept of a written constitution and influencing the shape of medieval Europe.
Today the Rule, with its universal message, offers a deep and practical spirituality to all people desiring a good life.
