Arquitetura Conventual e Cidade Medieval (Unknown language)

This book analyses the Portuguese context of one of the most important urban systems of medieval cities - that which resulted from the settlement of the mendicant orders and which would leave a profound mark on the urban landscape. The case studies to be considered are the monastic systems established from the 13th to the 15th centuries in the principal cities and towns in Portugal: Lisbon, Santarém, Coimbra, Oporto, Évora and Guimarães. Following the initial analysis which examines the processes of how the monastic systems were formed, an assessment of the impacts that these systems had on the urban space will be made, namely in relation to the role they played in the spatial dynamics which characterised Portuguese cities in the Late Middle Ages. This book intends to address two fundamental concerns: to include a critical analysis of the Portuguese case amongst the academic work in this field produced on a European level and to offer a contribution to the affirmation of the importance of the "mendicant phenomenon" on the history of the city and urbanism in Portugal
