Le monastère de la Grande Chartreuse (Isère - France)

(F) Le monastère de la Grande Chartreuse est le premier monastère et la maison-mère de l'Ordre des Chartreux. Il est situé au pied du Grand Som, quatrième plus haut sommet du massif de la Chartreuse. L'implantation des Chartreux dans le massif qui leur a donné son nom fait de ce site le type de l'espace monastique cartusien, bien que lordre se soit accommodé dès le xiiie siècle de sites urbains et de maisons situées en plaine, voire au bord de la mer. Conformément à la règle cartusienne, le monastère ne se visite pas, mais un musée est installé à la Correrie, en aval du monastère. On peut y voir des reconstitutions de cellules de moines. (EN) Grande Chartreuse is the head monastery of the Carthusian order. It is located in the Chartreuse Mountains, north of the city of Grenoble, in the commune of Saint-Pierre-de-Chartreuse (Isère), France. Originally, the château belonged to the See of Grenoble. In 1084, Saint Hugh gave it to hermit Saint Bruno and his followers who founded the Carthusian Order. Today, visitors are not permitted at Grand Chartreuse, and motor vehicles are prohibited on the surrounding roads. However, a museum of the Carthusian order and the lives of its monks and nuns stands about two kilometers away. The order is supported by the sales of Chartreuse liqueur which has been popular in France and later around the world since the early 1700s. English poet Matthew Arnold wrote one of his finest poems, Stanzas from the Grande Chartreuse, while briefly staying at the monastery around 1850. The quiet, serenity, and monastic calm became, for him, the susurrations of a dying world which contrasted with what he saw as the violent emerging age of machinery. Grand Chartreuse was also described in the 1850 revision of William Wordsworth's The Prelude, Book VI, lines 416-88 (Wordsworth visited the monastery in 1790), and John Ruskin's Praeterita. The monastery was closed in 1903 by the French state. The monks found refuge in Italy until 1929, but returned in 1940 when it was reopened. A documentary film about the monastery entitled Into Great Silence, directed by Philip Gröning, received acclaim on the film festival circuit following its release in 2005. fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grande_Chartreuse en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grande_Chartreuse it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grande_Chartreuse ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/グランド・シャルトルーズ de.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Grande_Chartreuse ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Гранд-Шартрёз musee-grande-chartreuse.fr/en/ Map for tourists: google.com/…sGFRs_bGoAgPkjKFZZv-61x8&hl=fr VALPARD FILMS valpardfilms.awardspace.com
