Conversione e conversioni in Teobaldo di Provins

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Conversion and conversions in Theobald of Provins

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] The rereading of Theobald's Life (especially in the broad editorial, little considered by the previous historiography) leads to review the usual totally hermit interpretation of Theobald's experience. His is a path of progressive conversions which, from the initial decision to flee the world, will lead him to become a pilgrim and later to develop a common life form with strong anororetic veins in the Veneto area. The priestly ordination, which placed him in the Vicentine clergy, and the subsequent decision to become a monk in the Benedictine abbey of the Vangadizza, are stages in the itinerary of the progressive institutionalization of the religious experience of Theobald, who died June 30, 1066 and canonized by work of Alexander II probably during a Roman synod in the spring of 1069.
