Description :Print showing the manual labor of the religious of the abbey of Trappe. From a series of 19 prints, "Les travaux et les jours de la Trappe", illustrates the life of the Trappists, their manual activities and ceremonies. Armand Jean le Bouthillier de Rancé (January 9, 1626 Paris – October 27, 1700 Soligny-la-Trappe), abbot and founder of the Trappist Cistercians. On the death of his brother, in 1637, he became canon of Notre Dame de Paris, abbot of La Trappe Abbey, and of several other places, which gave him a revenue of about 15,000 livres.
He retired to his abbey, of which he became regular abbot in 1664 and introduced an austere reform. Rancé's reform focused first and foremost centered on penitence. It prescribed hard manual labour, silence, a meagre diet, isolation from the world, and renunciation of most studies. The hard labour was in part a penitential exercise, in part a way of keeping the monastery self-supportive so that communication with the world might be kept at a minimum, as shown by the print here and the accompanying text.
The series was published by several Paris publishers like Bonnard, Charpentier, Guérard, Rochefort and Trouvain. Rare.
Condition : Very good condition.
