This session challenges some of the a priori conceptions we might have concerning the later use of the so called ‘normative’ monastic sources within religious orders: especially statutes, customaries, and constitutions. It explores the reception of these sources by studying copyists’ interests as well as manuscript transmissions, and pedagogical and hagiographical traditions.
