John completed the sermon-meditations on the Song of Songs which had been begun by Bernard of Clairvaux and continued by Gilbert of Hoyland. In one-hundred twenty sermons, he brings the task to its conclusion, in the process demonstrating the persistence of the patristic-monastic exegetical tradition and the influence of the early thirteenth-century intellectual tradition.

Text: English, Latin (translation)Review:
[John] emerges as a lively and original commentator, writing sensitively from a deep experience of the spiritual and monastic life. Carrying on where his great predecessors, including Saint Bernard, left off, John knows grace and its counterpart, humility, are central to all christian spirituality; he also has an exceptionally keen awareness of the church as a body whose members share in each other's treasures and rejoice in each other's blessings.Simon Tugwell OP, Cistercian Studies Quarterly
