Reviews

While medieval hagiography is never unambiguously reliable as a historical source, these works do present a clear statement of Bernard's ideals of sanctity. They also present a generally accurate picture of the Irish church in the mid-twelfth century-a church living amid great social disorder and as yet untouched by the Gregorian reform or the new monastic institution.
