Abstract
This paper proposes a new understanding of the way in which reform was initiated in monasteries of the central Middle Ages by presenting a case-study of the abbacy of Lambert of Saint-Bertin (1095-1123). As evidence relating to the early phase of Lambert's government shows, he both organized and participated in a number of public performances which preceded any formal announcement of reform but were instrumental to its success. What makes it hard to distinguish the reformist subtext of these performances is the fact that the instruments used to stage them were typical examples of 'traditional' abbatial government, while the principle of investing them with reformist meaning pre-dated Lambert's abbacy.
