Life in a Medieval Monastery
Full Product Description
A fascinating glimpse into the world of Medieval Monasticism.
Durham Cathedral is one of the most complete sets of monastic buildings in Europe, housing clues to the life of a prominent and thriving medieval Benedictine community.
Through its buildings, and the books, treasures and records housed within, the world of Durham's monastic past comes alive once more, offering clues to the history of this vital Norman stronghold, and providing a critical exemplar of the medieval monastic life.
"In republishing this excellent little book, we hope that the monastic tradition that was lived at Durham for nearly five centuries will come alive for contemporary readers. Today, Benedictine values continue to undergird our life as a Christian community in Durham . . . so I hope that this book will help people of all ages to understand more about this cherished aspect of our history and heritage, and that through its insights into the past, it will add to visitors' enjoyment of the Cathedral and its precincts today."
- The Very Revd Michael Sadgrove, Dean of Durham from the foreword
