MEDIEVAL MONASTIC LIFE IN THE BLACK FOREST

The monks of the Middle Ages had a divine mission: to establish monasteries in the wilderness, far from civilisation. And so they built awe-inspiring edifices in the secluded valleys and lonely foothills of the Black Forest. The construction of such architectural masterpieces in these vast, remote forests was – and remains – a remarkable achievement.
