Summary
"This book is the continuation of The Heads of Religious Houses: England and Wales 940-1216, edited by David Knowles, C. N. L. Brooke, and Vera London, which itself is now reissued with substantial addenda by Professor Brooke." "This present volume continues the lists from 1216 to 1377. In this period further record sources have been provided by episcopal registers, governmental enrollments, court records, and so on. Full references are given for establishing the dates and outline of the career of each abbot or prior, abbess or prioress, when known, although the information varies considerably from the richly documented lists of the great Benedictine houses to the small cells where perhaps only a single name or date may be recorded in a chance archival survival." "The lists are arranged by order: the Benedictine houses (independent, dependencies, and alien priories); the Cluniacs; the Grandmontines; the Cistercians; the Carthusians; the Augustinian canons; the Premonstratensians; the Gilbertine order; the Trinitarian houses; the Bonhommes; and the nuns. An introduction discusses the nature, use, and history of the lists and examines critically the sources on which they are based."--BOOK JACKET
