Faithful to the Cross in a Moving World: Late Medieval Carthusians as Devotional Reformers

In memoriam Francis Timmermans (Laken, 17/7/1937 - Brussel, 19/11/2015)

Na een professionele carrière op de hoofdzetel van AG Verzekeringen in Brussel, kwam Francis Timmermans pas in de jaren 1990 via archeologische opgravingen met de kartuizerorde in contact. Geboeid door de archeologie, bood hij spontaan zijn hulp als vrijwilliger aan bij een aantal opgravingscampagnes, onder meer in Frankrijk, waar hij kennismaakte met de professionele archeoloog dr. Jean-Luc Mordefroid (Unité de Recherche Archéologique Cartusienne, URAC).

E-PAPER: Five Steps Downhill

Five Steps Downhill. The typological sequence of Carthusian architectural adaption to new surroundings
Elke Nagel

Architecture provides a shell for monastic life ever since. More than others, the eremitic order of the Carthusians relies on seclusion from the world by the built environment. This contribution to session 516 of the Leeds International Medieval Congress 2015 summarises the results of a PhD research project run at Technische Universität München between 2006 and 2012 on Carthusian Architecture.
