You’re all so quiet! lol. I get a lot of people stopping by this page, but thanks to the miracle of ‘site traffic’ reports, I know you’re visiting!

So, while you’re here, feel free to leave a comment. Or even just say Hi. Or, as Liam from fromoldbooks.org says, let me know the color of your socks. :)

What a great site!
I am a medieval history buff, so this is a fine site for me…Is there a similar site for medieval religious houses in Scotland?

Also how about collegiate churches in England and Scotland at the Reformation?

I am a Catholic teacher here in California, and have visited England many times…especially to visit the medieval cathedrals…when I worked for an airline.

Thanks for your splendid site.


Hi Ken!

I hope you have discovered an answer to your questions by now. There are numerous sites out there, but most of them are scholastic and so the everyday time information I try to offer here can be hard to find. Check with the BBC and the British Library. They do articles and programs regularly and might have information with links to help you.

I think you have an absolutely wonderful site here. You have a huge wealth of information gathered into one site.

Thank you for what is here already.

Are you planning to add information?

Please let me know


Hi Dave!
Well, you added that comment in Jan 2011 and I have not even logged in since then. I am in seminary at the moment, and that is an overwhelming process. But, YES! I do hope to get back to this site and continue to improve and build it—it just might be a while. Luckily there are a number of new scholastic monastic sites available now, and people are adding manuscript sites and all sorts of things all the time. It’s nice to have others working to provide this content.
