The Rule of St Benedict: Historical and present impact

St Benet’s Hall, University of Oxford, celebrated a special display of Regula Sancti Benedicti (The Rule of St Benedict) on Saturday 1 February, with a series of lectures on aspects of the mediaeval Benedictine contribution to scholarship and libraries and its impact on spirituality today.

The oldest surviving copy of the Rule was on display.

It's also worth noting that the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Rt Rev and Rt Hon Lord Williams, Rowan Williams has just published a new book about the Rule of St Benedict:
