Description

The real theological distinctions between medieval Benedictine, Cistercian, Gilbertine and Camaldolese forms of monastic life are often glazed over in discussions of monastic life. A panel exploring these distinctions not only will bring out their own unique theological assumptions and presuppositions but it could/should also offer "food for thought" for contemporary monasticism.
