Abstract

In this session speakers will look at the architecture and material culture associated with specific groups of monastic and monastic buildings. The first paper will present the first results of the Monasticon Aquitaniae research programme, focusing on Romanesque monastic architecture in the Aquitaine region; the second paper will examine the relics and images associated with churches of the reformed orders in late medieval Ireland, as centres of pilgrimage; in the last paper the architecture and internal spaces of Irish Augustinian friaries will be explored, and compared to the better-known buildings of the Franciscan and Dominican orders.
