Description

The aim of this panel sponsored by the Ancient Abbeys of Brittany Project, is to present and discuss four new collaborative and interdisciplinary projects concerning Aquitaine, Normandy and Brittany.

Monasticon Aquitaniae involves specialists in history, art history, and archaeology from the Universities of Bordeaux-Montaigne, Poitiers and Limoges. The information gathered about abbeys in south western France will be included in the Colémon and ABBATIA databases. A few abbeys will be studied in depth, for instance Cadouin, Saint-Amant-de-Boixe, Saint-Jouin-de-Marnes, Saint-Maurin, Tourtoirac, and Nanteuil-en-Vallée. The Mont Saint- Michel Project includes a reconsideration of the architecture of the famous Benedictine abbey enhanced by the use of 3D scans and orthophotography, which will facilitate a better understanding of communications and exchanges within and in the vicinity of the abbey. The MILBRETEUR Project (l'an MIL en BRETagne et en EURope) focusses on religious, economic and social life in early Brittany seventy years after the area was wrenched away from Scandinavian control. The project relies on evidence from various sources: textual (Redon and Landévennec cartularies), archeological (religious sites, villages, residences of the aristocracy), geological (from the southern coastline of the Armorican peninsula), linguistic (from Scandinavian place-names). The Beauport Abbey Project includes a study of the Beauport site and of the Beauport church altar and triptych as well as the edition of more than 500 charters originating from or pertaining to Beauport, the only Premonstratensian abbey in Brittany, from its foundation, in 1202, to 1305, the date of its earliest charter in the French language. This edition, to be published in 2019, provides material for the study of the ecclesiastical, social, political, economic and linguistic history of XIIIth century Brittany.
