Jump to: navigation, search

The Regula Magistri or Rule of the Master is an anonymous sixth-century collection of monastic precepts. While probably it was used extensively by St Benedict as source material for his own Rule of Saint Benedict, there is no historical record of it having ever been used by any particular monastic community.
