"The decision to translate these early monastic rules was made at the first 1979-80 meeting of the Medieval Group at Saint John's University during the sesquimillennial celebration of the birth of Saint Benedict of Nursia. It was felt that making these rules available in English could be valuable for a general , nonspecialist audience wishing to become familiar with the tradition that produced the rule of St. Benedict. These translations are the result of that resolution."
