This volume collects ten essays previously published by the author providing a regional perspective of Benedictine monasticism in Flanders in the period 1050-1150. Together, the essays are intended to demonstrate the value of regional and individual institution studies for refining the general histories of Benedictine monasticism. In particular, three key points are stressed throughout the volume: the embedding of Benedictinism in secular politics; the institutional and societal development of Benectinism, together with issues of monastic leadership and autonomy; and the roots of the Cluniac reforms in longstanding institutional processes seeking a restoration of associations with highly placed patrons, particularly the counts of Flanders. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
