Later in the century, distinctive styles of Dutch illumination and coloured penwork point to notable production in Delft, Haarlem, and almost certainly Zwolle, in the...

This marriage was dissolved in 1970 and the same year he married Catherine Storr (née Cole), a psychologist and author of children’s books. The bare facts of Balogh’s life convey little of the man.

...reform came through Saint Robert of Molesne (d. 1111 ) and Saint Bernard of Clairvaux (d. 1153 ). They broke with the mainstream Benedictines and founded the Cistercian Order at Citeaux in France. By this time, much of Europe had become farmland and the Cistercians moved out into wilder country. Their writings expressed a sense of movement from wilderness to paradise. They still followed the Benedictine Rule. Whereas the Desert Fathers saw beauty in an unspoiled wilderness, Saint Bernard emphasized the beauty of labor in preparing the fields. There should...
