Trans. / ed. By Br David Hayes, OSB. This unique book, written by cloistered nuns themselves, answers many questions about the nature, justification, and history of the cloistered life, particularly for women. For example it shows that far from being an invention of the Middle Ages which was imposed on women by a male-dominated Church and society, enclosure was in fact freely chosen by nuns themselves from the very beginning and only later became an object of canonical legislation. Drawing on the riches of Christian tradition, this book examines enclosure from a biblical, historical, spiritual and theological perspective, showing how it aids the prayer-life and mission of cloistered nuns. This book will be of interest to all who are seeking to deepen their understanding of the contemplative life and prayer.
