The libraries of the Augustinian Canons
The British Library in association with the British Academy, 1998 - History - 572 pages
Medieval Book Lists and Library Catalogues from 34 houses of Augustinian canons (including houses of the independent congregations of St Victor and Arrouaise) are brought together in this volume. Among them is one of the most substantial of all surviving records of an English medieval library, the late fifteenth-century catalogue of Leicester Abbey, which records the contents of over 900 books and is a remarkable witness to the intellectual, pastoral, and devotional interests of a late medieval religious community. The volume also includes important catalogues from Waltham Abbey and Lanthony Priory, as well as a fifteenth-century book list newly identified as being from Thurgarton Priory, the house of the English mystic, Walter Hilton.
