    Aelred of Rievaulx: Dialogue on the Soul () by Aelred of Rievaulx, C.H. TalbotPages: Aelred of Rievaulx provides keen insight into the soul and into friendships between those who share the Spirit of Jesus Christ. A simple but profound read, the book does more than just talk about spiritual friendship, it is the very expression of its topic/5(10).

    Introduction. The most prominent of the Cistercian abbots of 12th-century England, Aelred of Rievaulx (b. –d. ), also spelled Ailred or Æthelred, was a popular preacher and a prolific writer, leading the monks of his monastery and overseeing five daughter houses while offering guidance to the great men of his time and traveling and preaching in England and France.   The last two chapters show the difficulty inherent in trying to write a summary of a Cistercian thinker, spiritual writers such as Aelred fight against systematizing. Yet, a systematic look at Aelred's theological anthropology is precisely what this book has delivered, and delivered quite well, without being untrue to Aelred of : Andrea Janelle Dickens.

    Saint Aelred of Rievaulx, writer, historian, and outstanding Cistercian abbot who influenced monasticism in medieval England, Scotland, and France. His feast day is celebrated by the Cistercians on February 3. Of noble birth, Aelred was reared at the court of King David I of Scotland, whose life. Spiritual Friendship is today the best known and perhaps most influential of the thirteen surviving works of Aelred, abbot of the great English Cistercian abbey of Rievaulx from ' During his abbacy he built Rievaulx into a place of spiritual welcome and physical prosperity, desiring to make it a mother of mercy" to those in need.5/5(1).
