Bernard de Fontaine, abbot of Clairvaux, born in 1090 in Fontaine-lès-Dijon1 and died on August 20, 1153 at the abbey of Clairvaux, was a Burgundian monk, reformer of Catholic religious life. Bernard de Fontaine has been tireless all his life in teaching his monks in Clairvaux, to move and train the crowds, to combine his order with the papacy and to develop a militant dogma that his order and the entire Catholic Church implement.
He was also a conservative, who lambasted the changes of his time la “Renaissance du xiie siècle”), marked by a profound transformation of the economy, society and political power. (Wikipedia)
