This is the first English translation for forty years of a medieval classic, offering vivid and unique insight into the life of a great monastery in late twelfth-century England. The translation brilliantly communicates the interest and immediacy of Jocelin's narrative, and the annotation isparticularly clear and helpful.
Diana Greenway and Jane Sayers work at the Institute of Historical Research, University of London. Dr Greenway is one of the general editors of the OMT series.
