From the greatest living expert on the history of English spirituality comes the most expansive collection ever published of her work

From the spirituality of Cuthbert, to Bede and the Psalter, Anselm the monastic scholar, and the depths of Julian of Norwich, from twelfth century hermits, through medieval pilgrimage, and by illuminating seventeenth century preachers, this volume is Benedicta Ward’s magnum opus. With a title drawn from the writings of St. Anselm—a beautiful summary of the Christian life—this book is designed to both inspire and educate.
