At the beginning of his pontificate in 590, Gregory the Great wrote the Regula Pastoralis as a manual for his bishops on how to manage their lives and their parishes. Silke Floryszczak examines Gregory's ideas on the duties and responsibilities, the conduct and attitudes of a bishop as well as his psychological and pedagogical reports on the members of the parish.
At the beginning of his pontificate in 590, Gregory the Great wrote the Regula Pastoralis as a manual for his bishops on how to manage their lives and their parishes. This book focuses on the concept of management in his work. The author examines Gregory's ideas on the duties and responsibilities, the conduct and attitudes of a bishop as well as his psychological and pedagogical reports on the members of the parish. By studying the term regula from the standpoint of the history of concepts as well as church policy, Silke Floryszczak places the analysis of the pastoral rule in its historical context. The author concludes her book with a study of the history of the reception of the pastoral rule in the Carolingian epoch.
