Profile

To atone for the sins of his early life, including a murder, Bernard lived in complete poverty, wearing rags, eating whatever came to hand, if anything, travelling barefoot from one holy place to another, and living as a hermit between pilgrimages. In 1178 he settled near the abbey of Sithiu and spent his remaining four years in private penance and prayer.
