Benedict of Nursia Audio Books

Saint Benedict of Nursia (ca. 480–547) is considered the founder of Western monasticism. He founded twelve communities for monks at Subiaco, Italy, before moving himself to Monte Cassino. The religious order named after him—the Order of St. Benedict—is not commonly thought of as an order, but rather just a confederation of autonomous congregations. His most noted achievement is thought to be the Rule of Saint Benedict, which contained the precepts for his monks and greatly influenced John Cassian’s writing.
