Cistercian Publications Suggests

Two lengthy letters from the abbot of Clairvaux illuminate the transition in theological method in the mid twelfth-century. In his letter to the bishop of Sens on the responsibilities of his office, Bernard articulates his monastic conviction that authority in the Church must be accompanied by contemplative virtues, especially a deeply ingrained humility.

. . . gives us a taste of a devout and learned soul who reflected deeply upon the mysteries of faith and did so as a 'loving listener.'
