The Vita Christi of Ludolph of Saxony, fourteenth-century Carthusian, is the most comprehensive series of meditations on the life of Christ from the late Middle Ages. Ludolph assembles a wealth of commentary from the fathers of the church and the great medieval spiritual writers and weaves them into a seamless exposition of the Gospel.

This is the full English translation of this classic work and, while it will be of great interest to students of Christian spirituality, it is intended for ordinary believers seeking to enter more deeply into the meaning of the life of Christ. Ludolph divided his work into two parts; the present volume contains the first half of Part Two.

Milton T. Walsh holds a doctorate in sacred theology from the Gregorian University in Rome. For many years, he taught theology at St. Patrick’s Seminary in Menlo Park, California. He is the author of several books, including Second Friends: C. S. Lewis and Ronald Knox in Conversation, In Memory of Me: A Meditation on the Roman Canon, and Witness of the Saints: Patristic Readings in the Liturgy of the Hours.

Reviews

"This translation of the Vita Christi is a colossal work making accessible to a new audience a monument of medieval spirituality that influenced such great saints as St. Teresa of Avila and St. Ignatius of Loyola. Ludolph of Saxony drew on patristic and medieval authors to weave a rich spiritual commentary breaking open the Word of God for his contemporaries. Believers will find wisdom. Students of history, theology and spirituality will gain access to an influential worldview. A magnificent endeavor!"
