The Papal Monarchy

Oxford University Press

The century after 1050 has been called ‘the monastic crisis’, but a crisis, which lasts for a century appears to be a misnomer. It was a time of monastic growth and change: the number of monks increased rapidly, and the great abbey of Cluny acquired new houses throughout France and in neighbouring countries. There were numerous experiments at living the life of hermits, and regular canons were founded to live a new form of the communal life.
