Summary
"The patronage of Benedictine art and architecture, and the circumstances that made it possible and desirable, reveal much about the ambitions, beliefs and allegiances of both the order and those who interacted with it. An understanding of the context of such patronage casts further light on some of the most important and beautiful buildings, sculpture, illuminated manuscripts, stained glass and other artefacts surviving from the middle ages." "In this survey, focusing on the Benedictine monasteries and nunneries in south-west England (including Glastonbury) during the two and a half centuries leading up to the dissolution of the religious orders under Henry VIII, the author considers patronage in terms of 'internal' practice, initiated by Benedictine monks and nuns, and 'external' practice, for which non-monastic agents were responsible; and he analyses the historical circumstances affecting the commission and the purchase of art and architecture." "Throughout, he takes care to situate the study of buildings and their embellishment within the broader context of Benedictine culture. The text is illustrated with forty-five black and white plates of art, architecture and documents, many of which have not previously been reproduced."--BOOK JACKET
