AbstractIn the Middle Ages, traditional forms of monasticism regarded monasteries and the world as antithetical poles. On the one hand, joining a monastic community meant leaving the world behind, so to be 'outside'. On the other hand, from 'within' the cloister, the secular sphere was perceived as the 'other'. This antithetical perception has been challenged in recent scholarship. The two combined sections aim to highlight in different perspectives the multiplicity of entanglements between both spheres, and to qualify the reciprocal relation of exclusion and inclusion.
