The Order of Prémontré once flourished on the Iberian Peninsula; today, however, there remain only two communities of Norbertines in Spain. Brother Terry Lauerman, O. Praem. will examine the history of the Order of Prémontré in Spain, examining the complex politics, cultural changes and reforms that have impacted the Order in that region, as well as how the unique properties of former Norbertine foundations continue to find new and creative uses in the present day.
