The priory of Santa Maria delle Giummare of Sciacca was founded, according to tradition, by Judith, daughter of Roger I and attested as the only Cluniac example in Sicily among the numerous priories created between the second half of the eleventh century and the beginning of the twelfth in Italy. Despite the particularity, the monastery has been little studied and several questions have to be answered. The essay analyzes the open questions related to the origins of the monastery and, therefore, to the date and document of foundation, to the founder and to the choice of the Cluniac order, restricting the chronological period in which the foundation could be realized and hypothesizing its reasons.
