I don’t normally watch videos online – sort of an unofficial personal rule, after all, what’s the point of not watching television if one can simply go online and watch virtually anything? – but while searching (unsuccessfully) for an English translation of the Rule of the Master I came across this short (six minute) video of Father Luke Dysinger OSB speaking on the difference between the Rule of the Master and the Rule of Saint Benedict, particularly in their view of the abbot, which may be of interest to others.

On the topic of Fr Dysinger (whose work on Evagrius I’d really like to read sometime, but that’s a longer term project), he has made some useful resources available here.
