Description

Monks were an integral part of early medieval society, yet much of the modern study of monasticism has placed it within its own historical trajectory rather than as part of early medieval history as a whole. Drawing on the discussions during the sessions on "Negotiating Monasticism in the Early Medieval Ages" at the 2011 Kalamazoo Medieval Congress, and The Contexts of Early Medieval at the 2012 Kalamazoo Medieval Congress, the sessions on Breaking Down Enclosures will continue to explore the role of monastic life and monasteries within their broader cultural, political and social contexts.
