Reflections on the Sexcentenary of Syon Abbey: Reading, Devotion and Reform

Brandon Alakas and Stephanie Morley - Canadian Society of Medievalists

Founded in 1415 by Henry V, the Brigittine community at Syon Abbey had been since its inception a centre for orthodox reform. During the fifteenth century, Syon served as a model for other religious orders which sought a return to the stricter observance of previous centuries. By the time of the community's expulsion in 1539, Syon had established its reputation as a prolific and vital source of vernacular devotional texts for religious and lay readers alike. Facilitating Syon's promotion of orthodoxy, the Additions to the abbey's rule press on the significance of books for the brothers and sisters of the order and underscore the intellectual and literary character of the institution.

The Essay as Genre

Despite the numerous exegeses in defense of the form from Lukács to Bakhtin, the essay remains a peripheral form of cultural production. Often praised as knowledge in-progress, the essay is experimental and variable ranging in scope from highly personal prose to timely political photography and film. Though the essay remains central to academic and theoretical discourse, it is often a space of anti-scholasticism and political transgression considered supplementary to traditional narratives.

Scientists have declared that we are in living in the Anthropocene, an age in which human behavior and actions are massively altering the ecosystems of the earth. Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen claims that whereas humans once saw themselves as "rebels against a superpower we call 'Nature,'" now "we are taking control of Nature's realm, from climate to DNA. We humans are becoming the dominant force for change on Earth."
