The Monk and the Book

Full Product Description

In The Monk and the Book, Megan Hale Williams argues that Saint Jerome was the first to represent biblical study as a mode of asceticism appropriate for an inhabitant of a Christian monastery, thus pioneering the enduring linkage of monastic identities and institutions with scholarship. Revisiting Jerome with the analytical tools of recent cultural history - including the work of Bourdieu, Foucault, and Roger Chartier-Williams proposes new interpretations that remove obstacles to understanding the life and legacy of the saint.

The Monk and the Book by Megan Hale Williams was published by The University of Chicago Press in October 2014. The ISBN for The Monk and the Book is 9780226215303.
