Benedict of Nursia

(

Italian

:


San Benedetto da Norcia


) (c. 480 – 21 March 543 or 547) is a Christian saint, honored by the

Anglican Church

and the

Catholic Church

as the

patron saint

of Europe and students.


[1]

Benedict founded twelve communities for monks at

Subiaco, Italy

(about 40 miles (64 km) to the east of

Rome

), before moving to

Monte Cassino

in the mountains of

southern Italy

. The

Catholic Order of St Benedict

and the

Anglican Order of St Benedict

are of later origin and, moreover, not an “order” as commonly understood but merely a confederation of autonomous congregations.


[2]

Benedict’s main achievement is his ”

Rule of Saint Benedict

“, containing

precepts

for his monks. It is heavily influenced by the writings of

John Cassian

, and shows strong affinity with the

Rule of the Master

. But it also has a unique spirit of balance, moderation and reasonableness (ἐπιείκεια,

epieikeia

), and this persuaded most religious communities founded throughout the Middle Ages to adopt it. As a result, his Rule became one of the most influential religious rules in Western Christendom. For this reason, Benedict is often called the founder of western monasticism.
