MonArch brings together a multi-disciplinary team to focus on the larger role of monasteries in medieval and early modern France. Work has been conducted, since 1982, at three sites: Saint-Jean-des-Vignes, Bourgfontaine and Notre Dame d’Ourscamp. Excavations continue at the medieval charterhouse of Bourgfontaine in northern France, focusing on the 14th c. Great Cloister and the excavation of a monastic cell.
As regular online visitors of the Joukowsky Institute's website will no doubt have noted, this new academic year comes with a new website. But the website is not the only exciting change -- we are also welcoming no fewer than eight new members to our real-life community on the ground in Providence. The launch of our new website seems the perfect time to introduce them.
