Regarding English Monastic Life

I offer an extremely large thanks for your generous transcription of Gasquet’s English Monastic Life. I’ve found scans of the book on various Internet library sites (such as Gutenburg) but the pictures and images accompanying the text do not come out well. I’m especially grateful for your abbey/prior floorplan graphics, which are absent from the extant scanned versions of the text.

Overall, your monastic site is full of useful information, especially for the medieval novice.

Thanks again for this great resource.


Hi Joe!
Great to hear the feedback! Gutenburg is great, but there are real limitations without the work of scanning and real transcription. The goal is accessibility and useability!
