St. Bernard of Clairvaux
Oracle of the Twelfth Century
By Abbe Theodore Ratisbonne

 

St. Bernard of Clairvaux. Abbot; Confessor; Doctor of the Church (1091-1153). In all history no other man so dominated his times and influenced its people. He prophesied; cast out devils; worked miracles; destroyed heresy; single-handedly healed a schism; launched a crusade; advised popes; guided councils; accomplished every mission given him – yet was always sickly; took no joy in the world nor pride in his successes; and ever longed to return to his cell.

 

A substantial account that delves extensively into his life and also into the events and characters of his time. A story to make you weep.
