Saint Bruno

Founder of the Carthusians, of whom a great book and great DVD have been the subject. The bookAn Infinity of Little Hours: Five Young Men and Their Trial of Faith in the Western World’s Most Austere Monastic Order details the lives of five novices entering the Carthusians in the 1960’s–it is well written and gripping. I’d recommend reading the book and then seeing Into Great Silence (Two-Disc Set), which is what I did–and in a great testimony to the fine writing of An Infinity of Hours–it all looked just as I had imagined it.
