Product DescriptionSt. Benedict of Nursia was one of Christendom's most influential monks. His teachings and holy example helped to lead Europe out of the darkness and chaos following the fall of Rome, and revitalized Christian devotion. He also founded many monastic communities and gave us the Rule of St. Benedict, which is still used by religious orders around the world.
