Any chance of getting some Cistercian Publications works in Verbum?  We seem to have a good relationship with Liturgical Press (the distributor of Cistercian Pub.), given that we have some $4,000 worth of their products currently in Verbum.  There are many works that will be of interest to many (even non-Catholics) such as the numerous biblical commentaries and homilies by monastic writers in the middle ages.

I also want to thank all involved for really putting in the effort to get more Catholic resources into Verbum; there has been a dramatic increase in content in recent months!

Yes

Br. Anthony,

A very good chance, in fact.  We have started licensing Cistercian Publications titles from LitPress.  We'll be posting a Bernard of Clairvaux collection in the coming weeks.  We will be licensing more Cistercian Publications titles in the coming months.

They have some of the best offerings in Patristic and Early Monastic literature in Catholic publishing.  Nothing is set in stone right now, but that's likely where the next round of licensing will focus.

Stay tuned....

Yes

That is awesome news. At the risk of jumping the gun, here are some of the books from Cistercian Publications that I have in print and would love to see in Logos:

May I put a word in for everything by Sister Benedicta Ward?

Just do them all! Party!!!

Though I would probably start with those having directly to do with scripture (commentaries and sermons).

MJ et al., -- Yes, Sr. Benedicta Ward is a good one.  Her work figured heavily into my Monastic Studies coursework at St. John's.  Her translation of the Sayings, Alphabetical Collection is one I return to often.

Br. Anthony -- I'd like to see Verbum do a lot of the Cistercian Publications titles--and as I said, there will be more coming.

Bernard of Clairvaux's commentaries on the Song of Songs are amazing.
