Review Quotes
Richard D. Oram, University of Stirling

“This is a splendid tribute by her colleagues, peers and students to the outstanding scholar of British medieval monasticism. Its thirteen papers—transformative, stimulating and pioneering—explore themes that span the range of Janet Burton’s research, underscoring the breadth of her scholarship and pointing to new research horizons that have been opened by her endeavours.”

Constance H. Berman, University of Iowa

“This volume pays homage to Janet Burton’s lifetime work on British monastic and ecclesiastical history. She has written on bishops and Cistercians and has importantly been a pioneer in work on Cistercian nuns. As well as focusing on monks, Benedictine and Cistercian monastic communities, Burton’s work has broken new ground in our understanding of communities of regular canons. The papers in this volume demonstrate close ties to, and inspiration by, Janet Burton throughout.  A solid, indeed spectacular, reflection of her work, but also a volume of substantial studies.”
