The Augustinian abbey of Saint-Jean-des-Vignes, founded during the 11th century and rebuilt during the Gothic 13th and 14th centuries, is not only an architectural masterpiece, it also played an essential religious, economic, artistic and social role in the region throughout the Middle Ages. This volume of ten specially commissioned essays seeks to promote an interdisciplinary approach to monastic archaeology and history, arguing that the evidence of standing architectural remains, archaeology and primary documentation should not be considered alone. The study also aims to reaffirm the place of Augustinian monasticism in the history of medieval Europe. The chapters are arranged thematically and include discussions of methodology, the foundation and growth of the abbey, the architectural evidence for its construction, the excavation of the Gothic chapter room and refectory, and the abbey's water management and gardens. Many of the abbey's architectural features are illustrated.
