Today the very words Benedictine or monastic, when attached to a book or CD, guarantee an audience. There is a cottage industry publishing books on Benedict’s Rule as a model for everything from corporate management and ecological balance to family life. Large film and TV audiences have watched British, French, and American productions that chronicle life in monasteries, as seen by outsiders.

This is a paperback edition of a classic work: David Knowles' abridgement of Volume 3 of The Religious Orders in England. Opening with vignettes of monastic life in the early Tudor period, the book examines the changing economic and religious climate as a prelude to the sombre story of the Suppression. The fate of the monastic buildings and lands and of the religious themselves is described in full, and numerous engravings and photographs illuminate this account of the transition from splendour to desolation.

An excellent book Gives a very comprehensive study of a complex subject.

Especially with the recent resignation of Benedict XVI and and conclave which elected Francis, this book is an absolute must for anyone who wishes to understand the Vatican and the RC Church. Outstanding!
