Saint Benedict of Nursia (c. 480 – 543 or 547) is honoured by the Catholic Church as the patron saint of Europe and students. Benedict founded twelve communities for monks at Subiaco, Italy (about 40 miles (64 km) to the east of Rome), before moving to Monte Cassino in the mountains of southern Italy. One of his most well known achievement is his "Rule of Saint Benedict", containing precepts for his monks. He is often called the founder of western monasticism.

hagiography in the true sense of the word. a study if holiness rather than a scientific effort to uncover the impossible -- that elusive sense of what really happened. this is a great devotional for those who seek sanctity.

I really enjoyed the story and was challenged by his life. Most of the readers were easy to understand. the first chapter was a little tough to get through but great after that.
