Robert of Arbrissel and the Order of Fontevrault – A Short Insight

pages: 75-82

Abstract

The work before us is an attempt to present the life of Robert of Arbrissel (around 1047 / 1050–1117), a person who through his actions can serve as examplar of life of 12th century apostolic preachers. He established a dual monastery in Fontevrault, lived as a wandering preacher, had great influence on women, prostitutes, the poor, the leprous. He was known for the holiness and simplicity of life, although attempts made in the direction of his canonization were not successful.
