L'ordre du Val des écoliers (1201-1539)

Abstract : The valley of the scholars was an order of regular canons founded around the year one thousand two hundred and one by four masters of theology in Paris who, at the time when the university was created, wanted to remind their colleagues of the prime meaning of the word scholar, that is to say a disciple of Christ. Though they were the contemporaries of the mendicant’s established in town, they left the urban environment to live as hermits in a remote valley on the borders of champagne. Joined by many disciples they spread and organized themselves into an order approved by the pope. They adapted themselves to the evolution of their time and renewed with the town and the intellectuals. the order owned twenty eight priories which were divided into three groups having their own originality: the first group depending on the famous house Sainte Catherine of Paris was near the king and the university, the second located in the southern Netherlands had a link with the beguines and the last one which could be found in the forests of champagne and burgundy remained attached to a traditional rural environment.
