Overview

Overview

`Both authoritative and attractive, this is a most welcome study... a cornucopia of facts and insights....' CHOICE
Professor Milis challenges the accepted view of monasticism as a powerful social influence on medieval life, supporting his case with detailed arguments. `A new assessment of the impact of monasticism on medieval society... a notable merit is that it obliges its readers to re-examine the assumptions which may have entered into their own consideration of the monastic role in society and led them to a different conclusion.'
