Editorial Reviews

Review
`L.'s approach and his conclusions represent a subtle departure from traditional studies of this period. His use of discourse analysis and the examinatiion of authority through discourse offer new perspectives for interpreting the frequently dismissed language of the ascetic community.' Theological Studies, vol.62, no.4

Product Description
When barbarians invaded the Roman Empire in the years around 400 AD, Christian monks hid in their cloisters--or so it is often assumed. Conrad Leyser shows that monks in the early medieval West were, in fact, pioneers in the creation of a new language of moral authority. He describes the
making of this tradition over two centuries from St. Augustine to St. Benedict and Gregory the Great.
