The Cistercian abbey of Melrose is perhaps the most beautiful of all Scottish monasteries. This first account in 50 years, by Scotland’s foremost medieval architectural historian and a leading medieval historian, draws on archaeological, architectural, and documentary evidence to show the nature of the monastic visitors, how the abbey’s great estates were administered, and why the architecture of the abbey church is the most important illustration of late Gothic architecture in Scotland.
