Over time the idea that a monastery without a refectory was not really a monastery increasingly took shape. The monastic refectory epitomises community like no other place within the monastery, a concept that is based on the Last Supper of the Apostles. This is a topic that has received considerable scholarly attention, yet its treatment remains uneven, focusing on the Cistercian Order in an architectural context and on the mendicants where the iconography is concerned. Few attempts have been made to link these aspects, nor to consider in a single study the connections between architecture, iconography, and the social practices that enliven the monastic refectory.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2022-10-31T08:13:00Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
