The purpose of this article is to outline and discuss some themes of particular interest in a classic of western Christian organization, the Rule of St. Benedict. While the focus of the Rule is on the worship of the Community - the "opus Dei" - there are a number of interesting observations regarding internal control of material possessions and the management of trading relationships.
