Dust jacket notes: "Bernard of Clairvaux, the colossus of the twelfth century, spanned both ecclesiastical and civil society. Counsellor and reconciler of popes and kings, his tireless activity and his profound and extensive writings touched on every aspect of human life and left an indelible mark on the Christian civilization of the West. Bernard of Clairvaux was chosen as the subject of this volume to honor Dom Jean Leclercq in a particular way for the quarter century of ceaseless travel, search and labor that have gone into the preparation of this excellent critical edition of the works of St. Bernard. A few of the many eminent scholars who have profited by Father Leclercq's articles and books and by the use of his edition of St. Bernard offer here a study in grateful tribute. The wide ambit of their contributions - literary form, social doctrine, theology, liturgy - give some hint of the vast compass of Father Leclercq's own work. This rich book, honoring a poor man, harvests the finest twentieth century visions of the most remarkable man of the Middle Ages."
