Mendicants in the Medieval Urban and Non-Urban Landscape

Faculty Tower, Room #409

 

Lecturer(s):
Jozsef Laszlovszky

Institute:
CEU, Medieval Studies Department, Budapest



The seminal study of Jacques le Goff demonstrated the role of medieval mendicant orders (Franciscan and Dominican) in the urban development of Europe. Studies on urban topography and social systems also contributed to our understanding of new the spiritual movements in the thirteenth century and their impact on the transformation of urban settlements. The lecture will discuss exceptional topographical cases for the mendicant friaries situated in rural landscapes or attached to royal residences. Furthermore, regional aspects of the urban development and its connection to royal urban policies will be presented with the examples of mendicant houses in East-Central Europe.
