Timothy Gregory Verdon
This profusely illustrated collection of essays grew out of a symposium co-sponsored by Saint Anselm’s Abbey and Yale University in honor of the fifteenth centenary of Saint Benedict’s birth. Articles by some of the leading scholars in the field, along with an Introduction by Professor Verdon, explore the relationship between organized religious life in Western civilization and the art forms this has fostered from the Middle Ages through the Renaissance.
Some of the topics discussed include book illumination, monastic stained glass, Renaissance art and popular religion, monastic architecture, the Cistercian contribution, music for a Cluny Office of Saint Benedict, and a postscript on contemporary monastic architecture and life in America. The contributors: William Loerke, Aidan Kavanaugh, Jean Leclercq, Walter Cahn, Otto von Simson, Marvin Eisenberg, Bennett Hill, Sumner McK. Crosby, Meredith Parsons Lillich, Peter S. Hawkins, William Hood, R. Kevin Seasoltz, and Timothy Gregory Verdon.”
