by the Rev. Bruno Scott Jamea
Eight hundred years ago St. Bernard of Clairvaux died. Father Bruno Scott James , who has recently edited the most complete edition of St. Bernard's letters to appear in English, talks about the kind of man that emerges from a study of the letters, and shows not only the greatness of this dominant figure but many of his human qualities.
