Project: Manuscript production and the formation of corporate identities in high medieval monasteries in the bishopric of Liège

project duration
01-OCT-10 – 30-SEP-13
abstract
Monasteries from the bishopric of Liège (late 11th and 12th centuries) found themselves at a cultural crossroads between the German Empire and the French region and consciously maintained relations with abbeys from both regions. I will analyze how manuscripts were used to shape the identities of the Liège monasteries through a comparative study of their textal contents and material presentation.
