Bernhard von Clairvaux:
The times, the man and his work
by Richard Storrs

Five essential quotes from St. Bernard & # 39; s ON LOVING GOD

Bernhard von Clairvaux (1090 – August 20, 1153) was a French abbot and an important leader in the revival of Benedictine monasticism by the emerging Cistercian order. He was sent to found a new abbey in a remote clearing in a ravine known as Val d & # 39; Absinthe, about 15 kilometers southeast of Bar-sur-Aube. According to tradition, Bernard founded the monastery on June 25, 1115 and named it Claire Vallée, which developed into Clairvaux.

Bernard's theology continues to be of great importance, especially within the Cistercian and Trappist orders. Bernard led to the establishment of 163 monasteries in different parts of Europe. When he died there were 343. His influence led Alexander III to initiate reforms that led to the introduction of canon law. He was the first Cistercian monk to be included in the calendar of saints and was appointed by Alexander III. Canonized on January 18, 1174. Pope Pius VIII awarded him the title "Doctor of the Church". He is known as the “Mellifluous Doctor” for his eloquence. Cistercians honor him as the founder of the order because of the widespread activity he gave to the order. (via Wikipedia)
