When barbarians invaded the Roman Empire in the years around 400 A.D., Christian monks hid in their cloisters--or so it is often assumed. Conrad Leyser shows is that monks in the early medieval West were, in fact, pioneers in the creation of a new language of moral authority. He describes the making of this tradition over two centuries from St Augustine to St Benedict and Gregory the Great.
