Gilbert of Sempringham, St by Edward Cuthbert Butler

GILBERT OF SEMPRINGHAM, ST, founder of the Gilbertines, the only religious order of English origin, was born at Sempringham in Lincolnshire, c. 1083–1089. He was educated in France, and ordained in 1123, being presented by his father to the living of Sempringham. About 1135 he established there a convent for nuns; and to perform the heavy work and cultivate the fields he formed a number of labourers into a society of lay brothersattached to the convent. Similar establishments were foundedelsewhere, and in 1147 Gilbert tried to get them incorporated inthe Cistercian order. Failing in this, he proceeded to formcommunities of priests and clerics to perform the spiritualministrations needed by the nuns. The women lived accordingto the Benedictine rule as interpreted by the Cistercians; themen according to the rule of St Augustine, and were canonsregular. The special constitutions of the order were largelytaken from those of the Premonstratensian canons and of theCistercians. Like Fontevrault (q.v.) it was a double order, thecommunities of men and women living side by side; but, thoughthe property all belonged to the nuns, the superior of the canonswas the head of the whole establishment, and the general superiorwas a canon, called “Master of Sempringham.” The generalchapter was a mixed assembly composed of two canons and twonuns from each house; the nuns had to travel to the chapterin closed carts. The office was celebrated together in the church,a high stone screen separating the two choirs of canons and nuns.The order received papal approbation in 1148. By Gilbert’sdeath (1189) there were nine double monasteries and four ofcanons only, containing about 700 canons and 1000 nuns in all.At the dissolution there were some 25 monasteries, whereof 4ranked among the greater monasteries (see list in F. A. Gasquet’sEnglish Monastic Life). The order never spread beyond England.The habit of the Gilbertines was black, with a white cloak.

See Bollandists’ Acta Sanctorum (4th of Feb.); William Dugdale,Monasticon (1846); Helyot, Hist. des ordres religieux (1714);ii. c. 29. The best modern account is St Gilbert of Sempringham,and the Gilbertines, by Rose Graham (1901). The art. in Dictionaryof National Biography gives abundant information on St Gilbert,but is unsatisfactory on the order, as it might easily convey theimpression that the canons and nuns lived together, whereas theywere most carefully separated; and altogether undue prominence isgiven to a single scandal. Miss Graham declares that the reputationof the order was good until the end. (E. C. B.)
