Abstract

The three papers in this panel examine ethnic and cultural conflicts among members of the same religious communities. While all papers focus on the late Middle Ages, each paper looks at a different geographic region, which will allow for comparative thoughts and debates. Johnny Jakobsen discusses tensions in the mendicant communities of Scandinavia. Cornelia Linde highlights the conflicts between Irish and English mendicants on the British Isles. Andreas Rehberg, finally, explores hostilities against German monks in the monastic communities of Subiaco, Farfa, and S. Zeno in Verona in the late 15th and 16th century. Together, these three papers will shine a new light on the only at first sight peaceful coexistence of members of religious orders under the same roof.
