André Louf's probing essay on the nature of humility revisions this fundamental Christian virtue away from the misunderstandings of both the scholastic tradition and its modern counterparts to locate humility in the ancient sources of the monastic tradition.
His incisive study prefaces a collection of primary texts which range from the early desert fathers to Saint Bernard of Clairvaux.
The translator has added further information about the author and his other writings as well as a bibliography for further reading.
