Description

This second selection of articles by Dom Jacques Dubois complements that previously published by Variorum, Histoire monastique en France au XIIe siècle: Les institutions monastiques et leur évolution. It looks first at the place occupied by monks in medieval society, as seen by their contemporaries, then considers the respective importance of work and prayer in the daily life of their communities. Finally, two major studies on the Abbey of Mont Saint-Michel, which remain to this day models of research, examine priories and the significance of the cult of relics and monastic treasuries for the monks of the Middle Ages. Cette seconde sélection d’articles de Dom Jacques Dubois vient en complément du volume Histoire monastique en France au XIIe siècle, Les institutions monastiques et leur évolution, déjà parue chez Variorum. Il s’agit tout d’abord d’un regard porté sur la place occupée par les moines dans la société médiévale, telle que la percevaient leurs contemporains, et puis d’une prise en considération de l’importance respective du travail et de la prière dans la vie quotidienne de leurs communautés. Pour finir, deux études sur l’Abbaye du Mont St-Michel, qui restent, à ce jour, un modèle du genre, examinent les priorés et la signification du culte des reliques, ainsi que celle des trésors monastiques pour les moines du Moyen Age.

About the Series

Variorum Collected Studies

The first title in the Variorum Collected Studies series was published in 1970. Since then well over 1000 titles have appeared in the series, and it has established a well-earned international reputation for the publication of key research across a whole range of subjects within the fields of history.

The history of the medieval world remains central to the series, with Byzantine studies a particular speciality, but the range of titles extends from Hellenistic philosophy and the history of the Roman empire and early Christianity, through the Renaissance and Reformation, up to the 20th century. Islamic Studies forms another major strand as do the histories of science, technology and medicine.

Each title in the Variorum Collected Studies series brings together for the first time a selection of articles by a leading authority on a particular subject. These studies are reprinted from a vast range of learned journals, Festschrifts and conference proceedings. They make available research that is scattered, even inaccessible in all but the largest and most specialized libraries. With a new introduction and index, and often with new notes and previously unpublished material, they constitute an essential resource.
