St. Bonaventure's Life of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ by Saint Bonaventure (1221 - 1274).


Seeing himself as "unequal to so great a task", St. Bonaventure nevertheless endeavored to introduce his readers to the practice of "the most beneficial of all devout exercises, and that which is most capable of leading [them] to the summit of Christian perfection": the contemplation of the life of Our Lord. By "frequent and habitual meditations on that divine subject" even "very illiterate persons" have been raised to such "familiarity, confidence, and love of him" that they have become "profoundly versed in the most sublime mysteries of God". What better way "to arm our breast against the flattering, yet fleeting vanities of the world; to render us steady amidst tribulations and adversities; and finally, to preserve us from vice, and facilitate the possession of every virtue"? He addresses his reader in "plain and unpolished" language, "that you may the more easily comprehend the matter here treated, and study rather to improve your mind and heart than flatter your ears." "I hope still more, that if you are but diligent in the exercise of this devout study, that the Lord, whose life is here treated of, will become your master and instructor."

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Maria beat me by just a few hours, but if the need ever arises, feel free to call on me as a back up proof listener.

Thank you so much, Phil! I was actually hoping you would be my MC. . . .

One question: do you think we could remove the "Translated by Anonymous" part from the intro/outro?

Yes, definitely. Please take it out.

OK, I've removed the "Translated by Anonymous" and filled in the MW (my fingers are a bit numb after so much pasting!). It looks like every chapter is short enough to fit in a single section. The longest one by far will be the appendix, which I've estimated roughly at no more than 38 minutes.

I also removed the ~ from the thread title since Maria will be the DPL.

Please let me know what else I need to do (or if I need to undo anything I shouldn't have done. . . .).

Thanks again for your help!

And the Preface is PL OK! :-)

If ever I go several days without Pl'ing a chapter, feel free to nudge me. It might mean I saw it, meant to listen to it but didn't have time at that moment, and promptly forgot! (I've done that before!) :-)
