Abstract

A session exploring the nature of boundaries, using the evidence for religious orders: between 15th-century Italian government elites and holy men (Franciscan and Dominican preachers), between a Dominican and the Brethren of the Common Life in the early 15th century, and between members of religious orders (Cistercian and Dominican) and those aspiring to be incorporated.
