He was a Benedictine monk called “the Cripple” because of a deformity of his body. He entered the Benedictines when he was a child of seven. He became one of the great religious poets of the Church. It was Blessed Herman the Cripple who wrote the Salve Regina (the Hail, Holy Queen) which is recited at the end of the rosary.
