Description

Scandinavia become Protestant in the 16th century and closed the Cistercian abbeys. Yet Cistercian influence is measurable in the Middle Ages and today. The re-founding of the house at Tautra, Norway, in 1999 (est. 1207, closed 1531) is one example. Scandinavian studies rarely engage Cistercian history, but houses were established in all three territories in the 1140s, including daughter houses of Cîteaux and Clairvaux. Religious, economic, and social Cistercian influence has not recently been addressed in Scandinavian or Cistercian scholarship. Tyler Sergent
