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.
