The Latin of this edition of the life of St. Benedict by St. Gregory the Great, is from that used by dom. Edmund Martàne, the English is almost exactly that of the quaint translation published in 1638. The test used for the Holy Rule is that of an ancient MS. existing at Monte Cassino, first published in 1659 by Dom. Paul de Ferrariis, a monk of that Abbey. The English is, as far as is consistent with the original, from the time honoured translation of 1638, as edited in 1875 by “one of the Benedictine Fathers of St. Michael’s, near Hereford.”
