Bernard of Clairvaux - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2942 words)
Saint Bernard of Clairvaux (Fontaines, near Dijon, 1090 – August 21, 1153 in Clairvaux) was a French abbot and theologian who was the main voice of conservatism during the intellectual revival of Western Europe called the Renaissance of the 12th century.
Bernard was born into the noble class: his father, a knight named Tecelin, perished on crusade; and his mother Aleth, a daughter of the noble house of Mon-Bar, and a woman distinguished for her piety, died while Bernard was a boy.
Bernard's resolution to become a monk was not, however, shaken, and when he at last definitely decided to join the community which Robert of Molesme had founded at Citeaux in 1098, he took with him his brothers and many of his relations and friends.
CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: St. Bernard of Clairvaux (3552 words)
Bernard, the third of a family of seven children, six of whom were sons, was educated with particular care, because, while yet unborn, a devout man had foretold his great destiny.
Bernard resumed his commentary on the "Canticle of Canticles", assisted in 1139, at the Second General Lateran Council and the Tenth Oecumenical, in which the surviving adherents of the schism were definitively condemned.
Bernard sent him, at his own request, various instructions which compose the "Book of Consideration", the predominating idea of which is that the reformation of the Church ought to commence with the sanctity of the head.
