Founded by Gilbert 1130. Had a lot of women his parish approaching him wanting to live the monastic life. He constructed for the women a church and cloister for them against the wall of his own house. Soon new grants and grants of land were made to him- there was a real need. Gilbert decides to rejuvinate institution of double monestary though at first he wanted his nuns associated with Cistercians. Order declines bc they are becoming shy at this time of allowing new womens communities. So he starts to link communities of canons with communities of nuns. Typical gilbertine monestaries had a community of men on one side with community of women on the other. Canons sang hours and celebrated mass for nuns in the central church. Men and women were hidden from each other by a screen when in central church- placed wafer on little turn table. Women sing hours in their own choir. But then there was a sexual scandel- woman found to be pregnant. Scandel meant attack on double cloister- canons attacked and asked for completely separate spaces, but Gilbert had some powerful friends who appealed for him and the double cloister survived. Dissolution of monasteries- when King Henry orders monestaries to be sacked and property given over to crown in 16th C the Gilbertines still had 25 houses

founded by Norbert 1120. Norbert solved the problem of women wanting to be affiliated with his order by redefining the understanding of a double monastery . There the sisters had a subservient role- tended the church when the canons sung the liturgical offices but otherwise were assigned humble if not humiliating jobs such as darning and doing laundry for male community . Had a role much like lay breathren in Cistercian communities. Recruitment of women did remain vigorous. Those who opposed them began to organize and work to overthrow their fellow monestaries. They succeeded- eventually the order suppressed the double monestaries and decreed that the women had to live in separate houses far away from the mother monastery . This may have improved their status- gives them more opportunity for self-government. Become at this point canonesses, no longer handmaidens, and begin singing the hours. Autonomy still circumscribed by visitations by a prior, and they paid a real economic price for their semiindependence- once they stopped providing material services for the canons, they got less and less support from those abbeys. In the end at 1200 decided women would no longer be admitted to the order. Innocent III ratified ths decision which dooms female Premonstratensians to slow gradual extinction as they died out
