The role played by rules, or its absence, in differing forms of monastic space is questioned. How can a religious order define the insertion of its monasteries in the territory? Is there a link between the history of a country and the monastic insertion in the territory? How can an implied rule become a fundamental and imposed rule when a monastery is planned and built? Throughout the analysis of monastic insertions on the Portuguese territory, as well as the study cases of monastic medieval architectures, the debate is initiated.
