Manuscripts and Monastic Culture arose out of a conference by the same name that took place at Stift Admont in August 2002. You may view the conference website here.

Planning for a subsequent conference that will bring together scholars from the Anglo-American and German traditions is in its early stages. For more information, please contact Prof. Alison Beach.
