Talk – Kirkstall Abbey & the Cistercians: Tradition and Innovation in the founding of a new order

 

We don’t usually think of ‘People Power’ in connection with the founding of monasteries, but the story of the establishment and spread of the Cistercian Order is a repeating narrative of individual leadership, and enterprise and innovation within a strongly traditional monastical framework. This illustrated lecture sets the foundation and development of Kirkstall Abbey within this larger context. This talk, part of Heritage Open Days, takes place in the Colonel North Room, Kirkstall Abbey Visitor Centre

With Prof. Joyce Hill.

No booking required, free.
