Overview

Written at the end of the fourth century, Augustine's rule for clergy in community spread like fire among stubble in the sweeping movement for reform of clerical life in the eleventh and twelfth centuries. Among those who lived by it were Premonstratensians (Norbertines), Canons Regular of Saint Augustine and Augustinian Hermits—Martin Luther's order—, several military orders, the Ursulines, Visitation Sisters, and the Dominican friars. Shorter and less detailed than the Rule of Benedict, the Rule of Augustine guides communities formed for the active ministry. Both masculine and feminine versions are translated here.
