Specific References

This book brings together the insights of twenty-six scholars across eighteen articles, and it delves into key themes of Cistercian Studies, including the normative frameworks, visitations, and reforms within the Cistercian Order. It explores the distinctiveness of specific communities, the interplay between Cistercian architecture and liturgical texts and practises, and the significance of Iberian Cistercian libraries and manuscripts. The book also examines the material characteristics and technical evolution of the Cistercian Order using advanced laboratory techniques, providing crucial contributions to the history of the Alcobaça scriptorium in its early centuries and continuing to influence Cistercian studies today.
