Abstract

The regulation of the women's religious life at the beginning of the 13th c. was at the center of numerous experiments promoted by the papal curia in particular. With the Roman monastery of S. Sisto and its regulation, Innocent III attempted to give a new institutional physiognomy to female monasticism. Cardinal Hugo of Ostia who continued on this path, had the fortuitous insight of closely linking the new female monasteries promoted by the Apostolic See to the Mendicant Orders. The examination of the letters addressed by Jordan of Saxony, the first successor of Dominic in the office of Master General of the Preachers, to Diana d'Andalò and her community of S. Angese at Bologna makes it possible to notice the points of comparison between its development and that of its contemporary, the Order of S. Damiano. Clare of Assisi and Diana d'Andalò desired to closely follow the charism of their own founder, but they also had to measure up to the directions of Gregory IX.
