History: Medieval Monasteries, Murder & Mayhem

Running for 8 sessions:

Monasticism took on a new fervour after the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. Religious Orders from France came to England, Wales and Scotland to seek the 'wilderness'. Pivotal to this new lease of monasticism was the 'Rule of St. Benedict' which was so closely adhered to by the Cistercians, a new monastic order that grew out of the need to follow 'The Rule' more strictly. Here, in North Yorkshire, Rievaulx was established as a daughter house of the monastery at Clairvaux, the seat of the all-powerful Bernard, whose interference in ecclesiastical politics in Yorkshire were to have huge, international repercussions, including the suspicious death of William FitzHerbert, Archbishop of York, in 1153. This course will cover the monastic order in Yorkshire from 1069 to 1215, as well as looking at the broader picture of monasticism throughout England. In particular, we will investigate the growth and the influences that the Cistercians enjoyed in the Medieval period.

The Project

Three years ago, Rowan McCabe became the world’s first Door-to-Door Poet. Knocking on strangers' doors, he asks what is important to them; he then goes away and writes a poem about this, free of charge, before bringing it back and performing it on their doorstep. Through this bold and arguably stupid act, he hopes to prove that anyone in the world can enjoy poetry. The project has been featured in the Guardian, on BBC Breakfast and was named 'Best of Today' on BBC Radio 4.

The Show

Through a funny and thought-provoking mix of spoken word and theatre, Door-to-Door Poetry charts the full story of Rowan's adventures around the North East of England, including his visit to a mosque in Newcastle and his trip to Kingston Road in Stockton, the location for Channel 4’s controversial documentary Benefits Street. Completely out of his comfort zone, Rowan stumbles into a series of unlikely events that question fixed notions about the world we live in. Discussing isolation and prejudice in today's society, this show asks a simple, yet vital question: Can we trust strangers?
