Summary
As hubs of spiritual and scientific, monasteries were the information centers of the Middle Ages. This program explores the varying missions--and the often-cloaked thoughts and feelings--of the medieval monk, within the larger context of the era's highly regulated and intrigue-ridden religious life. With the focus on the interaction of European and Arab cultures, as well as the importance of libraries and pre-Christian texts, the program's discussions of medicine, mathematics, astronomy, law, and philosophy portray monastic life as full and surprisingly worldly: not only the zenith of introspection, but an arena of passion, exploration and power struggle
