Inventing Sempringham

Gilbert of Sempringham and the origins of the role of the Master. Preface by Brian Golding

Reihe: Vita regularis - Ordnungen und Deutungen religiosen Lebens im Mittelalter. Abhandlungen, Band 46, 2011, broschiert, 280 Seiten

ISBN: 978-3-643-90122-4

This book explores the origins of the role of the Master or head of the order of Sempringham, the only monastic order to be founded in medieval England, from the foundation of the order to the final drafting of its legislation in the 1230s. It demonstrates that many previous assumptions about the early development of this important role are flawed, most notably the standard portrait of Gilbert of Sempringham, founder of the order, as a stereotypical charismatic leader, big on ideas but short on the capacity to provide his followers with effective leadership.
