As is known, there has often been a lot of controversy over rule conformity and observance. Less studied, however, are problems of linguistic communication and “national” tensions or prejudices in monastic communities. The three contributions aim to investigate and compare these conflicts in case studies from two large areas, namely from the Old (Habsburg) Imperium (Vienna, Bohemian border area) and from Italy. The time frame is struck consciously from the late Middle Ages to the early modern period. A priori it could be assumed that in monasticism the language and ethnic descent per se would not have an divising effect. The fact that during the period under investigation conflicts nevertheless occurred, is certainly related to increased monastic migratory movements and to special political and cultural circumstances. Not least the mood heated by the humanists and the anti-Roman effect during the fifteenth century may have stressed the inner peace of multi-ethnic communities. Also, some irritations in the course of the spread of Hussitism and the Reformation and the onset of Counter-Reformation should be included. The presenters from three European countries, under the moderation of Gabriela Signori (Konstanz), will consider three different forms of the vita regularis, each responding to the virulent internal problems in their own way. The panel seeks to open up a new cultural-historical perspective on monasticism and the vita regularis, in which aspects such as alterity, cultural transfer and acculturation are examined for their validity. Possible links to modern conflict research should be included. Some of the conflicts to be named got critical after a longer period of good living together or could be contained at least temporarily. It has to be examined, if in these latter cases we can find some clue for resolving even modern conflicts.
