Rules were central in the lives of mendicant friars. Not only did they live by a rule and set of constitutions of their own, they were also active promulgators of rules to other groups in society with regard to how we should all comply with the numerous regulations in Christian life, ultimately claiming to go back to the Rule of God. These sessions will look at the various roles rules played in the life of medieval friars: how they preached rules to be followed by laypeople and clergy; and how they administrated rules of Purgatory, inquisition, and monastic asylum – successfully as well as unsuccessfully.
