A conference of invited international scholars to study the Carmelite Rule from various aspects was held in Liseux, France on July 4-7, 2005. The meeting was developed and facilitated by the Administrative Board of the Order's Institutum Carmelitanum.
Approximately two dozen scholars from Canada, Brazil, Italy, Spain, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, and USA met at L’Ermitage, a residence for pilgrims to Lisieux. The center is administered by the Donum Dei, a group of Third Order Carmelites.
“This gathering represents the most diverse body of scholars to study this ancient text from a variety of academic disciplines and will build on the excellent series of papers produced by the Discalced General Definitory of the Discalced Carmelites six years ago.” said Fr. Patrick McMahon, O. Carm.. “It will mark a breakthrough in the study of res carmelitana.”
The study sessions was divided into the historical context of the Rule, textual studies, the classical commentaries, and contemporary approaches to the Rule of Carmel.
The papers were to be made available on the Conference website but the final version will be published as a book for the 8th centenary of the Rule in 2007.
