Description

Recent years have seen the publications of translations (The Great Beginning of Cîteaux) and critical editions of Cistercian exempla (Collectaneum exemplorum ac visionum Clarevallense; Collectio Exemplorum Cisterciensis; Liber visionum et miraculorum Clarevallensium). It is then important and timely to explore the role of exempla more in depth and from different perspectives. This session will focus on how these short, exemplary stories were used, rewritten and retold inside and outside the order.
