Abstract

This session will be used to announce three new Cistercian research projects: a preliminary study of the identities, affiliations, and networks of the heads of Cistercian houses in late medieval Wales, and of their political and social roles; relations between the Catalan Cistercian abbeys and their French mother house with particular focus on their foundations and early histories; and how local saints’ cults became incorporated into the culture of Cistercian houses, indicating important links with the surrounding lay communities and responses to the needs of patrons and benefactors.
