AS the germs of all the lessons taught by St. Benedict are stored Up in the various enactments of his world famed Code, any work of which the purpose is to explain that admirable piece of legislation may with justice be called the teaching of the great patriarch of the West. It is for this reason that we have ven tured to give what may appear to be a somewhat ambitious title to the present volume, the object of which is to make more generally known the wealth of ascetical, liturgical, disciplinary, and administrative lore which is locked up in the pages of the Rule. In order to do this in an efficient manner, the works of some of the most celebrated commentators have been consulted, their various opinions carefully collated, and no views advanced which cannot be defended on the authority of scholars, Whose learning and ability are so well known that their judgment is accepted with unwavering faith. Some brief account of the chief among these will not, we think, be out of place in the preface to a work which has been inspired by a perusal of a few of their voluminous writings.
