Overview
'My thoughts on the spiritual exercises proper to cloistered monks'; the ninth prior of La Grande Chartreuse (1180) articulates the monastic contemplative tradition in distinctively western terms. '...reading, meditation, prayer and contemplation. These make a ladder for monks by which they are lifted up from earth to heaven. It has few rungs, yet its length is immense and wonderful, for its lower end rests upon the earth, but its top pierces the clouds and seeks heavenly secrets.'

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not just for monks  Apr 23, 1997
Guigo II was a 12th-century Carthusian monk, the ninth prior of the Grande Chartreuse.

This is the classic work on lectio divina, a way of incorporating sacred reading in prayer. While not a how-to manual, this little book outlines four steps in lectio divina: reading, meditation, prayer, and contemplation. Guigo also provides an easily-understood rationale for this way of prayer.

This English translation is by the editors of the critical Latin-French edition in the Sources Chretiennes series.
