    Aims and Scope

    This volume offers a novel perspective on games as part of the living world of medieval monasteries and convents, the vita religiosa, as well as on the concept of order during the Middle Ages. It undertakes a multidisciplinary discussion of the creative force shown by the members of religious orders in inventing, adapting, and transmitting games, along with the ethical, social, and theological meanings these games had in pre-modern society.

    • Die Quellenlage zum Themenkreis Spiel in mittelalterlichen Klöstern ist sehr dürftig. Das Buch holt alles zusammen, was es nur irgendwo aufzutreiben gibt und bietet einen weiten Zugang zu dem Thema, was überaus erfreulich ist.
