Editorial Reviews


"The best survey now available, more detailed and closer to current scholarships . . ." --Religious Studies Review

"Students and teachers will find in this book a reliable, sensible, and up-to-date account of its subjects. There are no idiosyncratic opinions; students will never be misled into mistaking a minority viewpoint for a majority consensus....there are many innovative things about this book." Speculum

"...by its intelligent, lucid, and detailed summary of the very extensive research published during that half century, it is likely to prove as durable and as valuable to students as the works by Knowles." Journal of British Studies

Book Description

Tracing the development of monasticism in England, Scotland and Wales, this text explores the impact of the Norman Settlement, how Britain responded to new, European ideas, and the needs of religious women, as well as the relationships between the orders and their founders and patrons.
