The Rule of St Benedict, which dates from the sixth century, is the foundation of monasticism, one of the oldest continuing 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. For communities and individuals alike, the text of the Rule is central.

This first ever gender-neutral translation is true to the original text but provides an alternative for those who might prefer such a version over the masculine language of the original as it was written for St Benedict's monks, or as a text to read alongside Benedict's original.

Judith Sutera, OSB

Sr Judith Sutera OSB is a member of the Benedictine monastery of Mount St Scholastica in Atchison, Kansas. She is a popular writer, speaker and retreat leader, bringing Benedictine wisdom to oblates, academics, and religious groups.

'Having read many translations and interpretations of Benedict's Rule, I could hardly put this one down. Its language is fresh without being obtrusive, and Sr. Judith's commentary highlights both Benedict's practicality and deep prayerfulness." -- Bonnie B. Thurston, author of Shaped by the End You Live For: Thomas Merton's Monastic Spirituality 'Will likely be the new standard edition for readers of the Rule in the English language.' -- Rev. Dr Greg Peters, Nashotah House Theological Seminary
