Sermons on Conversion

By Bernard of Clairvaux; Translation and Introduction by Marie-Bernard Saïd
ISBN: 978-1-60724-207-9
The burgundian reformer abbot draws a picture of the perfect frontier bishop, and holds him up as a model for bishops everywhere. Conversion is used here not in the modern sense of transferring from one ecclesiastical body to another, but in the patristic and monastic sense of metanoia, turning one's entire being wholly to God.

In Praise of the New Knighthood

A Treatise on the Knights Templar and the Holy Places of Jerusalem
By Bernard of Clairvaux; Translated by M. Conrad Greenia OCSO; Introduction by Malcolm Barber
ISBN: 978-1-60724-203-1
The monk and the knight—the two quintessentially medieval European heroes—were combined in the Knights Templar, men who took the monastic vows and defended the holy places and pilgrims. With characteristic eloquence, Bernard of Clairvaux voices the cleric's view of the knights, warfare, and the conquest of the Holy Land in five chapters on the knight's vocation. Then, in another eight chapters the abbot who never visited the Holy Land provides a spiritual tour of the pilgrimage sites guarded by this 'new kind of knighthood.'

On Loving God

By Bernard of Clairvaux; Analytical Commentary by Emero Stiegman
ISBN: 978-1-60724-198-0
Perhaps Bernard's most delightful tract, On Loving God posits that everything good in human persons is an expression of God's love and by love the person may participate in the being of the triune God. In a new analytic commentary, Stiegman examines Bernard's language, logic, and theology, demonstrating the vital importance of reading medieval authors on their own terms, without superimposing categories developed by later generations.

The Steps of Humility and Pride

ISBN: 978-1-60724-197-3
The son of Burgundian nobility, Bernard admitted after years of struggle that humility remained for him the most elusive of the virtues. Yet the uncompromising vehemence of his love for God made him strive for what monastic tradition taught is indispensable to anyone hoping to share God's perfect love.
