[New Studies on the Cistercian Abbey Loccum.]
The abbey of Loccum, founded in 1163 by the counts of Hallermund, rapidly developed into a spiritual and economical centre in the Leine-Weser-area and was at the same time a focal point of aristocratic networks. To celebrate its 850th anniversary, an interdisciplinary conference was held in Loccum, organized by the abbey, the Evangelische Akademie Loccum and the Abteilung für Kulturgeschichte und vergleichende Landesforschung at the University of Vechta. This volume comprises eight of the papers given at the conference which gives new insights into the history of architecture, memoria, the economical history as well as the reformation period in Loccum.
