Abstract

The rich Cistercian heritage of Portugal will be explored in this session, including: the liturgical aspects and iconography of a 14th-century breviary copied and illuminated in the scriptorium of the Cistercian abbey of Alcobaça; a comparative study of the social composition all Portuguese Cistercian nunneries founded during the medieval period; and a detailed analysis of the influence of the Pseudo-Bernardine treatise De interior domo in the notion of ‘anxiousness’ (ancias) on the 17th-century Portuguese mystic Joana de Jesus and the physical manifestations of divine eroticism.
