Monasteries and Monastic Orders

2000 Years of Christian Art and Culture

Kristina Krüger

The history and culture of Europe have been shaped by monasticism, which has left a rich legacy of religious art and architecture. This volume follows its history from late antiquity through its peak in the Middle Ages to the present day. Well illustrated with photographs, paintings and illuminated manuscripts, the book describes the traditions, regulations and daily life of the different orders, profiles famous abbots and abbesses, and celebrates the continuing appeal of the contemplative life.
