"The compilation of this dictionary of the Cistercian Sign Language is an attempt to fulfill three needs: (1) to provide an illustrated list of signs for those communities that still use them; (2) to register an historical record of this sign language; and, (3) to make a basic contribution to the study of gestures, particularly technical gestures." - Introduction
