Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153) was the most influential man of his day. He was the counselor and adviser of Popes, princes, and the common man; he was an eloquent preacher (his sermons are strikingly Scriptural and remarkably free from quotations from the Church Fathers); he was the composer of beautiful hymns (the best-known hymns of his school are "O Bleeding Head and Wounded," "Jesus, the Very Thought of Thee," and "O Jesus, King Most Wonderful"); but above all he was a sincerely pious and truly humble Christian.
