Book: John Cassian and the Creation of Monastic Subjectivity

Chapter: Conflicts between Monasticism and the Church

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.42862


Establishes that conflicts between the Church and monasteries or individual monks were matters of historical, or at least rhetorical, record which I argue could have easily induced a type of monastic separatism in Cassian’s writings. This chapter details some of these conflicts and applies a typology to them.
