This is the first full scholarly study since 1902 of the Gilbertine order and its founder, St. Gilbert of Sempringham. The Gilbertines were the only native English monastic order, and highly unusual in their provision for both nuns and canons. Brian Golding provides a detailed and comprehensive account of the history of the order from its mid-twelfth-century origins up to the early fourteenth century. He examines the life of St. Gilbert and sets it within the context of twelfth-century monastic reform. His detailed analysis of the economy of the Gilbertines reveals much about monastic revenue and organization, and about relations with the lay community. Golding shows that by 1300 the Gilbertine experiment was largely dead. The founding ideals of a structure in which men and women could live in harmony and order had given way to male domination and the marginalization of the nuns.

About the Author:

Brian Golding is Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Southampton.

Review:


"One of the most comprehensive analyses of a medieval order available. The work is multifaceted, with insights from nearly all conceivable angles into the motivations, accomplishments, and milieu of the order and its founder."--History


"[Golding's] conclusions are sound and his supporting materials impeccably deployed. In brief, this is an exemplary book that should stand as the definitive work for the foreseeable future."--The Journal of Religion


"An exciting study."--CHOICE


"Golding has written what is probably the definitive study of his subject."--Church History


"[T]he importance of this work will go far beyond the study of the Gilbertines alone. Indeed, this fine book is well worth reading for how it makes readers think about all new religious orders of the twelfth century."--Albion
