St. Bernard of Clairvaux - Index

This is an index of the works of St. Bernard of Clairvaux, one of the most significant medieval theologians (A.D. 1090 – 1153). Of course, this is just an index of the works I know of, and is - in that sense - a work in progress. If you become aware of other works that I could add to the index, please let me know.

I know that St. Bernard wrote a sermon called "De aquaeductu" but I can't seem to find a copy of it anywhere. It seems to me that plenty of people have quoted from it (most notably Pope John Paul II) but no one seems to have the entire text. Have you run across it? Any help would be much appreciated.

That may be another name for his sermon on the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which should be in volume 3 of the French version of his works.
