Brief summary of the operation

Since Umberto Ecco, "In the name of the Rose", a revived interest in Monasteries looks anew at their role in science history, economic life and what impact they had e.g. Young Man Luther (Erickson). Modern monasteries have started to use new management methods, to redefine the partnerships operating them and to develop and to respond to a new kind of tourism (pilgrims, artists, businessmen). Some of them exist also as a mixed economy. This operation wishes to bring monasteries into the European context, to bring about an integrated approach to regional development by including monasteries in relation to new forms of tourism and the need to help bridge the secular with the religious worlds. The overall objective of the project is to raise awareness of the tradition and wealth of monasteries throughout Europe, comprehend through them regions of Europe and their religious/secular history while integrating monasteries into modern life cycles.

On the above basis, the current project, by examining past, present and future of monasteries in terms of cultural heritage, memory and civil society develops the following activities:

  • set up and operate a transnational coordination structure between monasteries of different religions
  • identify tools suitable for coming to terms with monasteries and holding of policy forums
  • suit the new role monasteries can play upgrade and introduce innovative management methods
  • develop monasteries as new training and learning centres
  • raise awareness of regional policy upon monasteries and contribution of monasteries to regional development by using already existing and developing new indicators

Expected results of the operation are the inclusion of monasteries in regional policy and improved state-church relationships, validation of varied approaches to management of monasteries and the access to new human resource capacities through training and education.

Tangible and visible outcomes of the operation activities will be:

4 steering group meetings, 1 conference, 2 policy forums, 4 case studies, 1 study, 1 guide, 1 summer course, 10 training / education seminars, 1 handbook for management of monasteries, 1 website / data base / archive, 1 feasibility study, 1 common publication, 11 leaflets.

Long term effects:

  • improved Structural Fund implementation / coordinated national and regional policy
  • more awareness in Europe for religious and secular traditions
  • through publication / awareness campaign: long term sustainability
