    Bernard was scarcely nineteen years of age when his mother died. Answer quickly, O Virgin. Denis, was converted by the apology of Bernard. In the first, God gives birth to himself in the soul of another, the mother of which is the original soul. I agree with Ealdgyth, it reads very pious.

    Marian devotion comprised some of the works of the Fathers, so Bernard shares in that tradition. Abelard's treatise on the Trinity had been condemned as heretical inand he was compelled to throw his own book into the fire. It is right in doing so, for on your word depends comfort for the wretched, ransom for the captive, freedom for the condemned, indeed, salvation for all the sons of Adam, the whole of your race. Or just as air becomes so radiant with the light of the sun that it appears to be the very sunlight itself, so it is with the saints whose human love is transmuted by the will of God Himself… Not until death is swallowed up in victory 1 Corinthiansand eternal light overwhelms all darkness, and takes full possession so that glory alone shines in their bodies, can our souls be entirely set free to be given wholly to God. Let's keep it encyclopedic, not evangelistic, eh? Bernard by Hommey in his Supplementum Patrum, Paris,p.

    Meantime between these two dates—in —the condemnation of Peter Abilaid and his tenets, in which matter Bernard appeared personally as prosecutor, took place at a council held at Sens. In he was again at Rome, impetuous and determined as ever, denouncing the election of a Cluniac instead of a Clairvaux monk to the see of Langres in France, and in high controversy in consequence with Peter, the gentle Abbot of Cluny, and the Archbishop of Lyons. The body is not, as in some older ideas held, a mere hindrance to the soul, from whence the tradition of speaking of the soul may have come, but they are partners. This exaltation of human reason and rationalism found an ardent and powerful adherent in Abelardthe most eloquent and learned man of the age after Bernard. The regime was so austere that Bernard's health was impaired by it, and only the influence of his friend William of Champeauxand the authority of the General Chapter could make him mitigate his austerities. He also teaches us many lessons about Mary, whose praises he wrote, preached, and sung while in this life.
