St. Norbert: A Man of Peace and Reform

St. Norbert: Archbishop of Magdeburg

St. Norbert: Archbishop of Magdeburg

After his horse was startled by a lightning bolt, the young nobleman Norbert of Xanten was thrown to the ground. He awoke with a vision that led him to renounce his appointment at high court, give away his wealth, and set out to preach peace, reconciliation, and Church reform. He left a legacy that, within a century, would spread internationally, with hundreds of abbeys established from Ireland to the Holy Land.

Join outgoing St. Norbert College president, Thomas Kunkel, and Fr. Andrew Ciferni, O. Praem., director of the Center for Norbertine Studies, for this lively discussion of our founder.
