Abstract

A descoberta de uma ata de visitação inédita ao Mosteiro de Cós, realizada em 1492, pelo abade de Claraval, constitui o mote para um estudo introdutório sobre as suas origens e a sua comunidade no período medieval. Perscrutam-se, em chave de leitura diacrónica, as características e as especificidades do Mosteiro de Cós, cenóbio singular no panorama cisterciense feminino português, pela sua dependência económica e jurisdicional
face à abadia masculina de Alcobaça, traçando-se, assim, o enquadramento histórico que ajuda a compreender a intervenção do abade de Claraval nesta comunidade monástica e o texto que dela resultou

The discovery of an unpublished visitation record to the Monastery of Cós, carried out in 1492 by the abbot of Clairvaux, constitutes the motto for an introductory study of its origins and its community in the medieval period. The characteristics and specificities of the Monastery of Cós, a unique setting in the Portuguese female Cistercian panorama due to its economic and jurisdictional dependence on the male abbey of Alcobaça, are examined diachronically, thus tracing the historical framework which helps to understand the intervention of the abbot of Clairvaux in this monastic community and the document that resulted from it.
