This volume, the fifth in a series to publish all 180 letters by the monk Peter Damian, presents Letters 121-150 which were written between 1065 and 1071. The correspondence includes letters to the Empress Agness, to lay officials and nobles, to monastic communities and to his nephew. In all of these letters, Peter deplores the excesses of the church, particularly clerical marriage, and stresses the need for reform, exhorting the qualities of a celibate, contemplative monastic life. Each translation is preceded by a brief summary.
