The Rule of St. Benedict forms the foundation for one of the oldest ongoing institutions in all of Western civilization. The Rule not only defines life for men and women in monasteries but has also become central to the spirituality of lay Christians across the globe.

This gender-neutral translation is true to the original text but provides an alternative for individuals and groups who prefer such a version over the masculine language of the original as it was written for St. Benedict’s monks. It also offers some background into the context in which it was written, as well as reflections on its meaning for contemporary life, making it a resource for those encountering the Rule for the first time or those who have cherished it for years.

Sister Judith Sutera, OSB, is a member of the Benedictine monastery of Mount St. Scholastica in Atchison, Kansas. One of the first women to receive a master’s degree in monastic theology, she has combined this education with a previous degree in counseling to become a popular writer and presenter for retreats and conferences, bringing Benedictine wisdom to oblates, academics, and religious groups.
