Contributes importantly to the ongoing debates about the Reformation and the medieval heritage of monasticism, and the contribution of the abbeys to taste and fashion in wider material culture. * LONGMAN-HISTORY TODAY BOOK OF THE YEAR PRIZE 2007 *
This magnificent book is both a regional study of much more than local significance and an art historical book that tells us much about late medieval monasticism. [It] is a major achievement. * SOUTHERN HISTORY *
Luxford's book provides much new material to consider and by taking the concept of patronage as a motivation, he has found ways of approaching the subject unrealised in previous studies. This is surely a model to emulate. * SEHEPUNKTE *
A pioneering work. * REVUE BENEDICTINE *
A rewarding read. [The author] has shone a bright light on late medieval Benedictine monasticism and persuasively argued for its strength and integrity. [...] He has created a new standard, transforming the way in which such studies must be conducted in the future. * THE BURLINGTON MAGAZINE *
An interesting book which would be a useful reference document for the church historian. TRANSACTIONS, Bristol & Gloucestershire Archaeological Society * . *
