The tenth-century stoudios-typikon and its impact on eleventh- And twelfth-century byzantine monasticism
MetadataShow full item record
The topic of this article is a now lost monastic rule, which was written at the Constantinopolitan monastery of Stoudios in the late tenth century. This rule is the first typikon that bears all the hallmarks of monastic reform: rejection of entrance fees, prohibition of clandestine eating and the requirement to confess to the abbot and to obey him in all things. The article seeks to determine the structure of the text through comparison of later adaptations for Russian and Southern Italian monasteries, and it attempts to assess its impact on Constantinopolitan monasticism through analysis of borrowings in the Pantokrator-Typikon, the Kecharitomene-Typikon and the Mamas-Typikon. © by Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften, Wien.
