AbstractThis session examines the formation of new religious orders and cults in moments of flux and periods of reform. Papers examine how, in these delicate moments of political instability, the papacy promoted the reconciliation of movements operating outside mainstream boundaries of cult. Our first paper looks at Cistercian reform, tracing the new community's reintegration into the Church. Focus shifts to papal promotion of the cult of Saint Nicholas of Bari in our second paper. The two themes of cult and order are united in a third paper on the Celestinian order's visual propaganda of humility.
