8vo - 21.5 x 14 cm; 69 pp. Translated by Michael Casey, OCSO with an introduction by Jean Leclercq, OSB. Footnotes throughout. This translation was first published in Volume I of the Cistercian Fathers Series and is based on the Latin edition as prerpared by Jean Leclercq and Henri Rochais. The letter, composed by Bernard (a Cistercian) and approved by William (a Cluniac), "excoriates monks . . . . Cistercians who had become slanderers, Cluniacs who had grown self-indulgent". Bernard's satirical wit spared no one who had lost sight of the monk's first duty, the love of God and the brethren". An as-new and unused book.
