Victorine spirituality, which emerged from the Abbey of St. Victor in Paris, was one of the most creative, exciting, and productive traditions of the Middle Ages. With emphasis on contemplative prayer, the presence of God in all things, and loving compassion toward one s neighbors, the Victorine tradition has many parallels with present-day spirituality and holds promise for enriching and energizing contemporary spiritual formation.
