Abstract

This session deals with three conflicts in different monasteries, in different periods: the conflict between a faction of Fulda monks and their abbot Ratgar in the 9th century, the conflict between Rather of Verona and Folcuin of Lobbes in the 10th century, and conflicts in the communities of St Hubert and St Trond in the 11th century and the role emotions played in these conflicts.
