Project: Learning as shared practice. Towards a new understanding of education in monastic communities of the High Middle Ages

2014-10-01 – 2022-01-07


The project aims to re-evaluate education in monastic contexts of 11th-12th century by relying on the concept of “community of practice” and thus stressing active social participation in the processing of knowledge, beliefs and attitudes. This will be achieved through a comparative analysis of the preserved monastic correspondence, which will address the contents, contexts and perception of the learning process.
