Bernard of Clairvaux

Essential Writings

Conceived during the religious renewal of medieval monasticism, the sensual and vibrant theology of Bernard of Clairvaux still speaks to our times. Tamburello’s narrative explores the themes of the saint’s work to achieve a vivid and inspiring portrait of the radical mystic.

Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153) was a Cistercian monk, famous in his own time as a theologian, statesman, and mystic. He was canonized as a saint in 1174 by Pope Alexander III and declared a Doctor of the Church by Pope Pius VIII in 1830.

This perceptive introduction to the great theologian traces the major themes of his work in key writings such as On Grace and Free Choice, The Steps of Humility and Pride, On Loving God, Sermons on the Song of Songs, and Five Books on Consideration.
