A.Ravier SJ was a life long friend and extrordinary confessor of La Grande Chartreuse and has written other books on the Order. He uses a massive work of historical studies taking 30 years to complete by the carthusians into their origins. These studies are unpublished but Ravier draws from them a realistic portrait of St Bruno more attractive to our age than the pious legends loved by former days.
