Saint Mary of Egypt : three medieval lives in verse( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although these vernacular versions seem to have been directed in part at monks, they also envisaged a larger audience. For most of her life Mary of Egypt was a pilgrim; her story has travelled from Palestine to Europe, from Greek to Latin to French to Spanish, and from the monastery to the secular world."--Jacket

On love : a selection of works of Hugh, Adam, Achard, Richard, and Godfrey of St Victor by Hugh Feiss( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The version of the Rule of St Augustine used at the Abbey of St Victor began with the command to love God above all things and one's neighbor as oneself. Not surprisingly, then, love was a pervasive theme in the writings produced there, many of which are introduced and translated here: (1) five lyrical essays by Hugh of St Victor (d. 1141): On the praise of charity; The betrothal--gift of the soul; In praise of the spouse; The substance of love; What truly should be loved?; (2) On the four degrees of violent love, by Richard of St Victor (d. 1173), which traces the likenesses and differences between romantic love and the love of God; (3) Achard of St Victor (d. 1170), Sermon 5 and two of Adam of St Victor's sequences are examples of how these authors wove love into their writings; (4) excerpts from the Microcosmus by Godfrey of St Victor (d. ca. 1195), summarize the central place of love in his humanistic theological anthropology."--Jacket
Two hagiographies by Hildegard( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in Latin and English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The text of the two lives in Migne's Patrologia latina is quite defective. This edition presents the complete texts from the best surviving manuscripts, along with the first translation of the two lives into English. The introduction relates the two vitae to Hildegard's biography, to her other writings, and to her establishment of her new monastery on the Rupertsberg. This edition also includes a bibliography of editions of Hildegard's Latin texts, English translations of them, and scholarly works about Hildegard --Book Jacket

4 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lives of monastic reformers, 2 : Abbot Vitalis of Savigny, Abbot Godfrey of Savigny, Peter of Avranches, and Blessed Hamo by Hugh Feiss( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume offers translations of the twelfth-century Latin vitae of four monks of the Monastery of Savigny: Abbot Vitalis, Abbot Godfrey, Peter of Avranches, and Blessed Hamo. Founded in 1113 by Vitalis of Mortain, an influential hermit-preacher, Savigny expanded to a congregation of thirty monasteries under his successor Godfrey (1122-1138). In 1147, the entire congregation joined the Cistercian Order. Around 1172, two monks of Savigny, Peter of Avranches and Hamo, friends but very different personalities, died. Their stories were told in two further vitae. The vitae of these four men exemplify the variety of people and movements found in the monastic ferment of the twelfth century."--
