In Search Of Cluny

Full Product Description

This book tells the story of the abbey from its humble beginnings as a hunting-lodge given to a Benedictine monk by the local duke, through its centuries of glory, to its long decline until the French Revolutionary mob vandalized the buildings and it was auctioned to local entrepreneurs as a stone quarry. It also tells the story of the men involved in this vast enterprise, individuals of exceptional determination and single-mindedness, whose faith co-existed with extraordinary political acumen. Reconstructing the lives, beliefs and ambitions of Cluny's abbots, Edwin Mullins puts the abbey and its network of dependent monasteries at the centre of medieval European history. He examines its vital contribution to the Reconquest of Spain from the Saracens, its role in organizing the First Crusade to the Holy Land and its conciliatory part in the violent struggles between popes and the Holy Roman Emperor. He also considers Cluny's relationship to England and William the Conqueror following the Norman Conquest of 1066 and the bitter conflict with St. Bernard of Clairvaux and rival Cistercian monaster
