Walter Daniel knew Aelred well and attended him on his deathbed in 1167. He remembered, and portrayed, him as abbot, counselor, and friend. Contemporaries who had known him as a public figure so immediately criticized the Life that Walter was driven to justify his portrait in the subsequent Letter to Maurice. A new introduction incorporates scholarship of the forty years since Sir F. M. Powicke's translation was first published.
