After the “Rule” of Saint Augustine and the “Constitutions,” the best known work from the Augustinian Order during its many centuries of history is without doubt the “Vitasfratrum” of Jordan of Saxony. As an extended commentary on the “Rule” and the “Constitutions,” an historical recollection of the first days of the order, and an embodiment of the monastic ideal of the Desert Fathers, the “Vitasfratrum” has educated and spiritually accompanied generations of Augustinians throughout the middle ages up to the modern times of the Catholic reform. Its historic and spiritual value remains. This volume is not just an important monument of the history of the Augustinians, but a source of spiritual and apostolic life and an inspiring model of a charism which is Augustinian and adapts itself to times and places to bring to men and women of every age the original insight of the Bishop of Hippo.
