9780879075675: Bernard Of Clairvaux: On Baptism And The Office of the Bishops (Cistercian Fathers series)

Two lengthy letters from the abbot of Clairvaux illuminate the transition in theological method in the mid twelfth-century. In his letter to the bishop of Sens on the responsibilities of his office, Bernard articulates his monastic conviction that authority in the Church must be accompanied by contemplative virtues, especially a deeply ingrained humility.
