 Our Description


Not only was St. Bernard of Clairvaux one of the most commanding Church leaders of the 12th century - an abbot and great monastic reformer - he also happens to be one of the greatest spiritual masters of all times.   His writings are straightforward and charitable, meriting him the title of Doctor of the Church and preserving him as one of great writers who should be read by all Catholics.

Perhaps no one put it better than our beloved Pontiff Pope Benedict XVI as he said, "The wealth and value of his theology are not owed only to opening new avenues, but rather on his having succeeded in proposing the truths of faith with a clear and incisive style, able to fascinate those who hear him and dispose the spirit to recollection and prayer."

Complete and unabridged on 2 CDs.

    Born to the French nobility; brother of Saint Humbeline. At age 22, fearing the ways of the world, he, four of his brothers, and 25 friends joined the abbey of Citeaux; his father and another brother joined soon after. Benedictine. Founded and led the monastery of Clairvaux which soon had over 700 monks and eventually 160 daughter houses. Revised and reformed the Cistercians. Advisor to, and admonisher of, King Louis the Fat and King Louis the Young. Attended the Second Lateran Council. Fought Albigensianism. Helped end the schism of anti-Pope Anacletus II.

Spritual advisor to Pope Eugene III, who had originally been one of his monks. First Cistercian monk placed on the calendar of saints. Proclaimed a Doctor of the Church by Pope Pius VIII.
