A very good introduction to the Cistercian order. Its history and customs. I has been years since I read this so can't give the best review,but I would most certainly recommend it for anyone interested in the Cistercian Order (including the Strict Observance aka Trappists) or an interest in Catholic religious life in general. ...more
