Abstract

This thesis uses primary and secondary sources to investigate what extent economic desires and topographical limitations impacted the construction of Cistercian monasteries when there was an ideal based on spiritual concerns. I found that economics played a large role in how the layouts of Cistercian monasteries developed.
