9780879073237: The Life and Miracles of Saint Maurus

Maurus serves in Gregory the Great's Life of Saint Benedict as an example of the monastic virtues Benedict taught. As Carolingian monasteries adopted the Benedictine Rule in the ninth century, Maurus reappears again, this time as the holy successor to the holy lawgiver. a life and Little Book of Miracles 'purportedly ancient 'extended his cult throughout France. Translated here and presented in their historical context, these two early medieval works present Maurus the apostle of French monasticism.

John B. Wickstrom is Professor of History at Kalamazoo College.

Review:

Few people would think that two somewhat obscure medieval documents coming out of ninth-century Carolingian France would have anything of import to say to contemporary monasticism, but such is not the case. The important lessons here are those that have to do with our search for meaning and how we undertake that search. Hagiography, and that is what these documents are, is not just a fanciful and idealized biography of a saint. More than that, it is about imagination, hope, and faith. These can never be replaced by historical data.Cistercian Studies Quarterly

Wickstrom has successfully drawn attention to Maurus’s relatively neglected hagiographical memorials and highlighted their importance as documents of Benedictine ideals.The Catholic Historical Review

[G]ives an insight into the establishment of Benedictine monasticism in France in the ninth century.CR
