COURSE DESCRIPTION:
Monasteries were a major venue for artistic production from the sixth to the fifteenth century. We will
examine how monks, nuns and friars used art and architecture in their religious life. We will study such
works as the book of Kells, made for Irish monks, Cluniac monasteries on the pilgrimage roads, and work
associated with new orders including Cistercian monasteries like Fontenay and the art of the mendicant
orders of Sts. Francis and St. Dominic.
CLASS READINGS:
There is no broad book devoted to this topic, so in class we will be using a broad variety of focused articles
and a lot of primary sources. All the required reading will be on blackboard and/or on the web.
While there is no required textbook for the class, I recommend using a general survey of medieval art as a
companion that can give a broader context for the material we are dealing with. Two good ones are
Marilyn Stokstad’s Medieval Art and James Snyder’s Medieval Art. Both have clear structures that will
enable you to find the relevant material easily.
REGULAR READINGS:
Most monks read a chapter of the Rule of St. Benedict every day, an d the entire Book of Psalms in a week.
These two texts, then, were constantly in their thoughts. If we want to understand medieval monasticism,
familiarity with these texts is essential. Therefore, I would like you to read a chapter of the Rule each day,
and at least two psalms.

HONOR CODE:
I take the honor code very seriously, and expect the same of my students. You should all be
familiar with the honor code (details available at http://www.oberlin.edu/studentpolicies/honorcode/), and
expect your professors to describe its application on their syllabi. In particular, it is essential that you write
and sign the honor code on all work you hand in for this class. If it is not, I will return the paper to you
without entering a grade until you sign it and return it to me. The Honor Code reads: “I affirm that I have
adhered to the Honor Code on this assignment.”
I value the Honor Code because it is fundamental to education in a liberal arts setting. Unlike some
educational environments, a liberal arts college believes that education is a transforming experience, both
personally and socially. To claim someone else’s work as your own makes that transformation impossible, thus
negating our purpose for being here.
1
In written work, I encourage you to share your work with other students, seeking their input,
comments and corrections. However, the paper must be substantively your own. Others may suggest how
you might better organize your paper; they may not re-draft it for you. In your paper, you must cite all your
sources in academically formatted footnotes. For guidelines to acceptable practices, see the brief outline
Sylvan Barnet, A Short Guide to Writing about Art, 6th edition, (New York, Longman, 2000), or the
extensive version in the Chicago Manual of Style, 14th edition (Chicago, 1993) or 15th edition (Chicago,
2003), all available in the Art Library and/or Mudd reference section. The Honor Code must be written and
signed on these assignments. If it is not, I will return the paper to you without entering a grade until you
sign it and return it to me.
If you have any confusion about how the honor code applies to any assignments in the course, please
ask me for clarification.
POLICY ON INCOMPLETE WORK, LATE WORK, AND ABSENCES:
Incomplete work: All work must be complete to pass the class. Failure to complete any assignment may
result in a no entry for the class.
Late work: Late work will be accepted only in case of true emergencies or by prior agreement with me. In
other cases, work turned in late will be accepted, with half a grade deducted for every two days between the
due date and the date it's handed in.
Absences: Since attendance and participation are an essential part of learning this material, repeated
absences will be penalized, and may result in a no-entry for the course--even if all written work has been
completed.
What’s the difference between challenging and stressful? what’s the difference between stressful and too
stressful?
Those questions are hard to answer. I hope that this class is challenging, both in the nature and the quantity of
its material, and I recognize that intellectual and logistical challenges are stressful. However, I never want all
the protocols and details of the class to create an unhealthy level of stress. If you are feeling like there’s too
much, or if the work is unmanageable, or you have circumstances in your life that require priority, please let me
know; things can always be adjusted to make it possible for you to do all the work successfully while living a
balanced life. I will work with you to make this class work for you.
ASSIGNMENTS in detail:
PLEASE STAPLE YOUR PAPERS, please.
NB: I DO NOT ACCEPT ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS except by prior arrangement.
All papers should be typed and double-spaced, with a font of 10 or 12. All sources should be cited in
correctly formatted footnotes.
NB:
Review the honor code, and be sure that you footnote all sources of information and include
photocopies of the major works you discuss.
Work Groups:
I will create five groups in the class. These groups will be used to schedule Object/Rule/Psalm papers,
for study of the Utrecht Psalter, and for paper proposal workshops.
A. Three short papers
The class has three short papers that require you to synthesize a number of the topics and readings
discussed in the preceding section of the class. All readings that precede the paper are probably relevant in
some way. There are two consequences from this:
first, you should study the potential topics today, so that as you encounter the material for the first time you
are already thinking about its contribution to your paper;
second, when you start to write the paper, review the syllabus, your class notes, and your notes for each
reading as you prepare the papers. If you choose not to use a reading, it would probably be helpful to
explain in a note why you did not find it relevant for the topic. I am open to other topics for each paper, but
you will need to demonstrate that the topic is sufficiently broad.
Note: The comparative brevity of these papers can be deceptive; to do well on them you will probably need
to overwrite them, and then trim them back.
2
Short paper 1 (5-6 pages):
Pick one of these two topics:
1) Compare/Contrast Architectural Implications of Rule of St. Benedict and Plan of St. Gall
This topic asks you to expand on the discussions on February 18 and 23, and their associated readings.
There is also useful information in the material we read about Sinai and insular manuscripts.
or
2) Monastic Attention: Icon, Chi-Rho, Utrecht Psalter, Plan of St. Gall, Uta Codex (pick three)
The donor of the plan of St. Gall invited its recipient, Gotzbert, to use it “to exercise his ingenuity.” In this
assignment, you select three works from this list (apse of St. Catherine’s, icon from St. Catherine’s, a ChiRho page, a page from the Utrecht Psalter, Plan of St. Gall, Uta Codex) and think about how they exercise
a monastic viewer’s ingenuity. What kind of attention do they invite and reward? How does their
appearance contribute to their use?
Short paper 2 (5-6 pages):
Build on our discussion from March 13 by writing a paper on the images of Uta and/or the image of
Durandus that compares and contrasts them with the texts we’ve read about abbots and their monks. Be
sure to take into account the placement of the image and the subject’s position in the history of his/her
monastery.
Short paper 3 (5-6 pages)
Pick one of these five topics:
1) Suger/Bernard
2) Suger/Hildegard
3) Monastic Artists
4) Legislation on Art among the Cistercians and Mendicants.
5) a topic of your own design, approved by me after consultation.
B. Object/Rule/Psalm
Over the course of the semester, each student will post two objects we did not discuss in class to the blog,
together with a 50 word explanation of the object’s origins and iconography.
Then write two paragraphs explaining:
1) how it relates to particular chapter of the Rule of St. Benedict;
2) how it relates to specific passage from the psalms.
This assignment has two goals:
1) to expand our reach beyond what we cover in class;
2) to deepen and regularize your knowledge of the Rule and the Psalms, the two most important texts for
medieval monks.
Students are encouraged to comment on these posts, which is a form of participation in the class. These
comments can include additional texts that resonate with the objects.
At end of semester, we will have a web that links objects, chapters, and psalms.
C. Final Paper 14-15 pages
Write a research paper on a single topic. Among the types of topic you may wish to consider are:
an individual work of art related to the class (even if the class didn't discuss it);
an iconographic question (St. Denis, or St. James, evangelists, depictions of the Crucifixion, etc.)
a single category of works (monastic Bibles, 12 th c. cloisters, paintings for monastic cells);
a single patron (Bernward of Hildesheim, Hildegard of Bingen, Suger).
You may write about a work featured in one or more of your other papers, which would allow you to build
on your earlier work.
In addition to learning a great deal about medieval art, I also want this class to provide a workshop on the
process of researching and writing, in art history specifically and in the humanities more generally.
In approaching a project like this, it helps to recognize that there are important steps along the way. You’ll
do better on the final paper if you recognize and pursue the individuality of these stages. In effect, when
3
learning to research and write in a new field, it helps to slow down the process, making each stage more
explicit, as you might do to learn a complex musical score or piece of choreography.
With that in mind, there are multiple stages in completing this assignment:
C1) Workshopping potential proposals. You will post two or three potential paper topics to blackboard,
and share them with a pre-assigned group. Each proposal will be about one paragraph long, suggesting
briefly the topic you wish to research and its interest. Each proposal must include three or four
bibliographic items. You must comment on the proposals from the members of your group, and are
encouraged to comment on others as well.
C2) Submit a final proposal of your topic. This proposal should be one page long, and include at least 10
bibliographic items and an image database. At least one of the 10 items must be in a foreign language, and
you must explain (as before) how you will use it. At least two of your sources must be primary sources.
And you must include a one paragraph summary for each of the 2 most important bibliographic items,
briefly summarizing their argument and evidence. Bibliography is a place where quantity equals quality, so
you can run up the score by having a big bibliography.
C3. Article Critique 4-6 pages
Find (with my help), read and critique a significant, thesis-driven article that is central to your final paper.
The essay should present the article’s thesis, the evidence and assumptions on which it rests, possible
problems with or objections to the thesis, and how you think the author would reply to those problems and
objections.
C4) Submit a draft of your whole paper, which I will reply to by May 8, so you have a six days to take
advantage and make revisions and improvements in your paper.
C5) The finished paper (14-15 pages).
The rigorous, step-by-step approach suggests what I will look for in your finished papers. Your paper will
be evaluated on several fronts; these include (but are not limited to):
the completeness and appropriateness of its sources and bibliography;
its engagement with their evidence and arguments;
its ability to fashion from these sources a convincing synthesis;
its awareness and explanation of its shortcomings or lacunae.
I hope that by following this rigorous approach to research, and by working together, you will be able to
write a final research paper that might be:
presented at the senior research day in the spring (see details about last year’s event at
http://new.oberlin.edu/office/dean-of-studies/symposium/ )
and/or nominated for the Oberlin College Friends of the Library Research Award
( http://www.oberlin.edu/library/friends/research.awards/index.html );
and/or serve as the basis of a proposal for the Leah Freed Memorial Prize Award
(http://new.oberlin.edu/arts-and-sciences/departments/gender/prizes/ );
and/or used as a writing sample in applying for graduate school or fellowships.
D. Participation
Default grade for daily attendance and conscientious attention is a B. I will let you know if I am
concerned that you are not meeting this level.

Egeria was a Christian European who made a trip to the Holy Land in the 380s; her account of
her travels offers early evidence about Christian monasticism. As you read her account, take
notes on what she says about monks, and ask if you can determine anything about their
material world, natural and human-made.
