A fine collection [that] will be of interest to monastic specialists and late medieval historians alike. * THE RICARDIAN *
[D]ie quellenbezogenen Erkenntnisse aller Aufsatze [sind] eine Bereicherung der Forschung, schon allein durch die Berucksichtigung von knapp 300 Niederlassungen, die durch zwei Register erschlossen werden. * DEUTSCHES ARCHIV FUER DIE ERFORSCHUNG DES MITTELALTERS *
The overall picture given of the relationship between religious communities and the secular world is both coherent and comprehensive. The work cannot be ignored by all who are interested in late medieval Britain. * REVUE D'HISTOIRE ECCLESIASTIQUE *
This is an absorbing volume and its contents will have much future application. * SOUTHERN HISTORY *
A very welcome collection [and] undoubtedly an important book. * CATHOLIC HISTORICAL REVIEW *
This collection of essays reflects the best in recent historical scholarship and gives the reader new insights into this period of monastic history. [...] All these chapters are high quality works of scholarship based on solid research, and the authors succeed in presenting their arguments in a clear and insightful manner. [...] Rather than a mere compilation of independent and unconnected essays, the editors have succeeded in producing a book which explores the richness and diversity of monastic life during this time period, especially its energy and vitality. * AMERICAN BENEDICTINE REVIEW *
The essays in the book have two main strengths: they cover the whole of the British Isles, and not just England; and their approach, in line with current thinking, is social and cultural rather than narrowly institutional. [...] Taken together [the essays] offer a fresh and illuminating set of perspectives on this long neglected subject. * HISTORY *
An interesting and authoritative text [which] deserves to be a classic text for students of this fascinating subject. * SUITE101.COM, August 2008 *
