Early Monasteries in Cornwall

£40.00

Product description

This 1989 hard cover book is in good condition with no internal markings or annotations. Page ends, tops and bottoms are all subject to foxing but this does not reach the actual text, The plain dust jacket is price clipped and still has a price label on it from original sale.. The edges of the cover are bumped. The actual hard cover is in excellent condition.

This is the first study for more than seventy years to consider the early monasteries of Cornwall through a combination of evidence ?written sources (the first hagiography of Brittany and Cornwall, ecclesiastical documents, Anglo-Saxon charters, Domesday Book), place-names and material remains. The main emphasis is on identifying the sites of these monasteries, and tracing their survival to later periods; Dr Olson also considers the origin and progress of monasticism in south-west Britain, and looks at the monasteries' characteristics and, in a broader context, their place in Church and society.
