Editorial Reviews

`a comprehensive account of the total outgoings of the community over a period of nearly sixty years ... There is an enormous amount of detail about the provisioning of the monastic community ... The editorial work is of a very high standard ... A fine piece of work in its own right, thisedition will be one of the most important building blocks when the history of the last century of English medieval monasticism, so curiously neglected in recent enthusiastic reassessments of the pre-Reformation church in England, comes to be written.'Christopher Harper-Bill, History
