St. Benedict Hero of the Hills by Mary Fabyan Windeatt Mary Fabyan Windeatt presents the powerful story of the famous life and miracles of St. Benedict for the Vision Book series of saints for youth. Known as the Father of Western Monasticism, St. Benedict played a major role in the Christinization and civilization of post-Roman Europe in the sixth century. Benedictines follow the Rule, which St. Benedict wrote for monks e arly in the 6th century. Preferring noth ing whatever to Christ (RB ), seeking to live the Gospel in a radical way, they are gathered in community, committed to the brotherhood by a promise of stability in chaste love and led in the way of conversion by the guidance of a superior to whom they promise obedience.   Modestly described by its author as "a little rule for beginners," this masterpiece of spiritual wisdom dates from the sixth century. It was originally intended as a manual for aspiring monks, a diverse group composed of serfs, scholars, shepherds, and sons of the nobility. St. Benedict's Brand: Dover Publications.
