Description

Scholarly discourse on early medieval monasticism has largely focused on its constitutional aspects, on the growing importance of the Rule of St. Benedict, on an imperially sponsored program of reform, and on the role of monasteries as “powerhouses” of intercessory prayer for their royal patrons. Largely overlooked was the tendency for monasteries to function as popular religious shrines centered on the relics of patron saints unique to their institutions. This session will investigate questions related to the meaning of the cult of the saints in a monastic context and its influence on the practice of monasticism and its ideals.

Speakers include Matthew Mattingly, Rutger Kramer and John Wickstrom
