Book review

The study of monasteries has come a long way since it began in the late 19th century. The emphasis has shifted away from reconstructing the layouts of monastic buildings to a better understanding of the wider monastic environment. The papers in this volume, partly based on a conference held in Oxford in 1994, are written by some of todayAes foremost scholars, and show the diversity of research now being carried out.
