Description

This session focusses on the Breton monastic world from the early Middle Ages to the early XIVth century, when Brittany began showing increasing signs of outside influence. These papers will concentrate on the impact of the religious and political struggles of the time on Breton monastic foundations.

Paper 1 will present a study of the ways in which monasteries such Landévennec, Redon and Mont-Saint-Michel wielded political as well as spiritual powers (IXth-XIth century). Paper 2 will attempt to show how a vision written by Eudes de Glanfeuil, can be seen an attempt to spread the Rule of Benedict in Brittany as support of Carolingian power. Paper 3 will describe how the scripts used at Sainte-Croix de Quimperlé give evidence that this monastery was in contact with ecclesiastical and wordly powers of the Loire valley, Poitou and British Isles. Paper 4 will analyse Marmoutier's XIVth century attempt to withdraw its Breton priories from the juridiction of Duke of Brittany as an opportunity for the King of France to get a foothold in the area.
