MONASTICISM

THE MONASTIC SYSTEM WAS INTEGRAL TO MEDIEVAL PILGRIMAGE AND THE INFRASTRUCTURE WHICH GREW UP AROUND IT. MONKS WERE GUARDIANS OF THE HOLY RELICS WHICH WERE THE GOAL OF THE PILGRIMAGES AND IT WAS THEY, ULTIMATELY, WHO DETERMINED THE NATURE OF ROMANESQUE ART WHICH ACCOMPANIED PILGRIMAGE

  1. Monasteries and the Feudal Order: There are those who pray
  2. The Benedictine Order and The Cluniac Reform: Then were innumerable sick folk healed in those conclaves of Holy men
  3. Monastic Endowments: The riches of a man are the redemption of his soul
  4.  Cluny’s Foundation: In Cluny a regular monastery shall be constructed
  5.  Cluny and the Compostelan Pilgrimage: This book was written in various places, that is to say, in Rome, in the lands of Jerusalem, in France, in Italy, in Germany, in Frisia and mainly in Cluny.
  6.  Saint Pons de Thomières
  7.  Saint-Pierre de Maguelone
  8.  Saint-Gilles-du-Gard: The monastic order under the patronage of this abbot flourishes, a possessed man is delivered from the devil
  9.  San Juan de la Peña
  10.  La Charité-sur-Loire
