and what it means.

Pope Benedict offers a reflection on Advent and the theme of “waiting”.

A look at St. Benedict’s Rule for monks and their consumption of alcohol allows for a half litre a day (3 big glasses). One can assume that many monks were drinking much more than that and needed to be restrained.

About Kleiner

Associate Vice Provost and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.
