Description

Woven into the Rule of Benedict is an image and a theology of Christ. Benedict's Christ is the Christ, present and to come. This session studies the image of Christ in Gregory the Great's Life of Benedict (Dialogues, 2, ca. 600), the Commentary on the Rule of Benedict by Hildemar (ca. 845), the Prayers to the Saints of St. Anselm of Canterbury (d. 1109) and at the very end of the Middle Ages, the writings of Louis de Blois (Blosius) (d. 1566). Did the image of Christ that Gregory presents differ from that of the Rule of Benedict? Did the fact that the last three authors were Benedictine monks affect their view of Christ? What other influences shaped their views of Christ? Hugh B. Feiss
