Bernard Of Clairvaux

Showing all 17 results

  • Monastic Sermons

    $39.95

    In addition to his eighty-six Sermons on the Song of Songs and the Sermons on the Liturgical Year, in which he follows the calendar from Advent through autumn, Bernard of Clairvaux composed these ‘sermons on various subjects’. His choice and handling of subject matter provides insights into Bernard the abbot more than to Bernard the public figure and renown preacher.

  • Sermons For The Autumn Season

    $39.95

    On the anniversary of the dedication of the monastery church at Clairvaux, Saint Bernard spoke to the community to explain the meaning of the feast: “What sanctity can these stones have that we should celebrate their festival? They do indeed have sanctity, but it is because of your bodies. . . . Your bodies are holy because of your souls, and this house is holy because of your bodies.”
    The thirty-eight sermons in this volume carry forth this theme, revealing the holiness of the monastic life as monks alternate through the rhythm of the day and the year between the opus Dei and manual labor, journeying faithfully through life to death and the transitus to glory.
    The twelfth-century Ecclesiastica Officia of the Cistercian Order required abbots to speak formally to their communities in chapter on seventeen fixed days, mostly liturgical feasts. This volume witnesses to Bernard’s fulfillment of this requirement and includes sermons for the Assumption and Nativity of the Virgin and the Feast of All Saints, sermons devoted to the feasts of particular saints celebrated during the autumn months, sermons for the time of harvest, and funeral sermons that look forward to the eternal joy in the communion of saints.

    $34.95

  • Talks On The Song Of Songs

    $17.99

    Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153), one of Christianity’s greatest mystics and father of what was perhaps the most influential new monastic order of the Middle Ages-the Cistercians-devoted eighteen years of his life to his literary master piece, Sermons on the Song of Songs.

    Although the Song of Songs, a brief book in the Old Testament, contains no explicit mention of God, the passionate love poetry became for Bernard a springboard into a major exposition of Scripture and an illuminated allegory of the spiritual life. Simply said, this gentle saint found God incarnate in every word.

    This volume containing excerpts from each of Bernard’s 86 sermons, joins the Paraclete Christian Classics Series, a highly-acclaimed series devoted to making the great writers of the faith accessible to today’s readers. Offering a fascinating glimpse of Christian theology, these writings encourage us to open ourselves to a new experience of love-the transforming and all-fulfilling embrace of God.

  • In Praise Of The New Knighthood

    $29.95

    The monk and the knight-the two quintessentially medieval European heroes-were combined in the Knights Templar, men who took the monastic vows and defended the holy places and pilgrims. With characteristic eloquence, Bernard of Clairvaux voices the cleric’s view of the knights, warfare, and the conquest of the Holy Land in five chapters on the knight’s vocation. Then, in another eight chapters the abbot who never visited the Holy Land provides a spiritual tour of the pilgrimage sites guarded by this ‘new kind of knighthood.’

  • On Loving God

    $19.95

    Perhaps Bernard’s most delightful tract, On Loving God posits that everything good in human persons is an expression of God’s love and by love the person may participate in the being of the triune God. In a new analytic commentary, Stiegman examines Bernard’s language, logic, and theology, demonstrating the vital importance of reading medieval authors on their own terms, without superimposing categories developed by later generations.

  • Homilies In Praise Of The Blessed Virgin Mary

    $19.95

    The young abbot meditates on the singular role of the virgin mother of Christ ‘to satisfy my own devotion’, and in doing so bequeathes his own love of Mary and of Scripture to his Order and to the Church.

  • Sermons For The Summer Season

    $24.95

    The always eloquent Bernard preaches on the joys and spiritual opportunities of summertime festivals: Rogationtide, Ascension Day, the Pentecost season, and the feasts of Saint John the Baptist and SS Peter and Paul. From a world still in touch with the seasons of nature and a lifestyle integrating prayer and physical work, he speaks to moderns with insight and calm sanity.

  • Steps Of Humility And Pride

    $19.95

    The son of burgundian nobility, Bernard admitted after years of struggle that humility remained for him the most elusive of the virtues. Yet the uncompromising vehemence of his love for God made him strive for what monastic tradition taught is indispensable to anyone hoping to share God’s perfect love.

  • On Grace And Free Choice

    $19.95

    Bernard ponders a question dear to early Scholasticism and the Reformation: How far can the fallen human person cooperate in salvation?

  • Sermons On Conversion

    $34.95

    The burgundian reformer abbot draws a picture of the perfect frontier bishop, and holds him up as a model for bishops everywhere.

    Conversion is used here not in the modern sense of transferring from on ecclesiastical body to another, but in the patristic and monastic sense of metanoia, turning one’s entire being wholly to God.
