QuotationBouyer's book Bible et evangile is brilliant but makes me nervous. Marmion never made anybody nervous but he does not always keep me awake. Where is the happy medium? What book was St. Benedict reading as he sat so calmly at the monastery gate and did not even look up to see the Goth approach, driving the tied peasant?
