The English Abbey Explained

Product Description

The English abbey conjures up images of soaring cathedrals, hooded monks and great medieval churches.  But what were the craggy ruins that grace the wooded valleys of our countryside really like, and how were they used in the past?  Using his drawings, diagrams and photographs, author Trevor Yorke explains the history of the English abbey.

This book is divided into three sections. Trevor Yorke first charts the origins of the abbey and traces its development from the late 5th century to the Dissolutions of the Monasteries in 1536. He also looks at their fate since.

The second section examaines their individual parts in detail, beginning with the most striking feature of monastic ruins, the church. He then looks at the cloister buildings, including the kitchen and dormitory; the workshops, guest houses and gardens; and finally the abbey estates.

The final section contains an illustrated time chart for dating abbeys, a glossary of unfamiliar terms and a list of recommended abbeys and priories to visit.
