  • $30.00


Shortly before the time of St. Benedict several monastics found their way into the rugged Jura Mountains in eastern France. Previously unavailable in English, their lives are here presented in eminently readable form: SS Romanus, Lupicinus and Eugendus. Supplemented by several contemporary documents, including the Passion of the Martyr Maurice and his companions, and a treatise "In Praise of the Desert" by Eucherius, later bishop of Lyon. Perfect-bound
