Cistercian devotion to the Mother of God expressed itself in their decision to commit all their monasteries to her patronage. The most famous of all the "White Monks," Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, has been called the "Marian Doctor." A close reading of his homilies, and the sermons and meditations of his Cistercian brothers in the twelfth-century brothers and sisters in the thirteenth, reveals that he and they were simply giving voice to and passing on a long and loving tradition.
