Negotiating The Boundary Between Monastic Seclusion And Apostolic Mission In The Bishopric Of Chur Around The Year 800, Jenny Ataoguz

Jenny Kirsten Ataoguz

By virtue of their lifestyle and learning, early medieval monks were particularly well-suited to serve a pastoral role, yet at the turn of the ninth century, Carolingian efforts at reform reveal a discomfort with monastic engagement with the secular world through the establishment of clerical precedence in matters concerning the laity. But just as reform characterized Carolingian monasticism, so too did diversity, and in a region immediately adjacent to the Bishopric of Chur we have direct evidence of monks playing a pastoral role.

In the Bishopric of Chur itself, the evidence may be less direct, but it is mounting. The ...

Altering The Tradition: The Traditio Legis At The Monastery Of Saint John, Jenny Ataoguz

Jenny Kirsten Ataoguz

The main church of the Monastery of Saint John in Müstair, Switzerland preserves on its walls an extensive program of wall painting dating to around the year 800. The half-dome of one of its three apses presents a Traditio legis, a theme that had originated in Rome in the fourth century. Although the composition was firm during the first centuries of Christian art, with Paul on Christ’s right side and Peter on his left, early medieval versions more often reverse their placement. The basis for the privileging of Paul – his reception of the law of the spirit in counterpoint ...

Visual Preaching In The Early Middle Ages: The Healing Arts At The Carolingian Monastery Of St. John In Müstair, Switzerland, Jenny Ataoguz

Jenny Kirsten Ataoguz

Around the year 800, the church of the monastery of John the Baptist in Müstair, Switzerland, received an extensive painted decoration. The resulting cycle is characterized by unprecedented visibility and clarity, which may most easily be explained by the expectation of lay beholders alongside monastic, which in turn suggests that monastic vocation at Müstair included a pastoral component.

A local sacramentary and a local preaching handbook, both intended for monastic usage and both written at exactly the moment as the decoration of the church, were two tools that the monks at Müstair could have had at their disposal as they ...
