How did the monks, nuns and hermits live? What rules did they agree to obey? To what extent were they able to uphold those ideals in reality? What was the relationship between the monasteries and wordly authorities? And what was the source of the power that the religious orders were able to exercise in political affairs at various times? Are the remarkable cultural accomplishments of the monasteries simply the fruits of great self-discipline, or did they also result from a privileged way of life? Who were the men and women who entered monasteries? The book covers the history of monasticism from its origins in late antiquity through its apex in the High Middle Ages and into the present. There is a presentation of various religious orders and what makes them unique, as well as short biographies of famous abbots, abbesses and monastic scholars. It covers the architecture of monastic complexes and the art and crafts within them, contains special chapters devoted to everyday life in a monastery, medieval book illumination, monastic gardens, and other comprehensive topics.

It is richly illustrated with photographs that bring the architecture, sculpture and paintings to life, as well as colour graphics, maps and floor plans. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

HASH(0x9d125a50) von 5 Sternen much more than a coffee table book! 7. Dezember 2008
Von matt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
What a fantastic find! If you have any interest in monasticism or Christian architecture, this is a must have for reading straight through and future (and frequent) reference. One of the largest books in my collection, it weighs in as a hefty book for any coffee table. But its size lends itself perfectly in capturing the massive grandeur of so many of the monasteries of Christendom with full page spreads in rich color and detail. The text itself, without the photos, would also merit the purchase, given its high level of academic detail and nuance. Take a look inside for a sample and begin a journey into the heart of one of the world's most important institutions and guardians of Christian (and Western and Eastern) civilization.

And the amazon price is unbeatable.

HASH(0x9d12be28) von 5 Sternen Fabulous Book, a real bargain! 2. Februar 2009

If you enjoy archictecture, especially "story-book style architcture", you will love this book. Not only are the photos fabulous, but the book is arranged in a way that you gain a great deal of information on the history of the orders, the development of the regions, and just a great sense of how that part of the world was developed.

I can't think of better large type book than this. You can have hours of fun admiring the detail and artistry of the photos, as well enjoy reading the descriptions of the orders and the properties.

This is a work, covering a period of two thousand years, that must have been a labour of love. It's absolutely packed with breath-taking photos of monasteries, cathedrals, basilicas and other religious structures. What a pleasure it was to discover photos of places that I had actually been to.

Catholic religious orders have such a rich history and I love reading and learning about them. This book is unique because it manages to put wealth of information together with big number of beautiful photograps so that we can not only learn but also see the beauty of many monasteries. Whoever is interested in learning more about different catholic religious orders and the way they live should buy this beautiful book and enjoy flipping through it's pages.
