I was wondering if there is a translation of the Rule of St. Benedict any of you could recommend in modern English that is faithful to the essence of the original?
I ask because I had purchased the Imitation of Christ and the translation was in archaic no longer used English and I ended up having to buy another more modern translation because I just couldn’t understand what was being said and the reading of it didn’t flow well.
That’s why I want to a modern translation of St. Benedict’s rule that is accurate and faithful to the spirit of the rule. I have read portions of the rule online but I can’t stand reading at my computer for more than 10 minutes at a time. I like a book that I can walk around with. lol
Anyways, your recommendations are most welcome. Thanks.
