Abstract:

St. Benedict's collision with history took place at the point of time when the Roman Empire was collapsing and the West was enveloped in unrest. It was his curious destiny to become an instrument for the stability and regeneration of European society when all he had in mind at the time he determined to forsake the world was to live the life of a solitary in a cave. Becoming aware of his own experience and observation of the unsuitability for his times of the forms of asceticism practiced by the Desert Fathers, Benedict consolidated the cenobitical life, discouraged private ventures in austerities, and laid down the norms by which men could live together in peace, labour and prayer.
