'for its simplicity and clarity it is a joy to read' Bury Free Press 'A very readable translation of a text that gives a substantial impression of life - especially monastic - in the 12th century.' Dr J. Hines, University of Wales, Cardiff 'gives a precious insight into the soul of a mediaeval monastery ... It is difficult to choose between the delights of this piece. Diana Greenway and Jane Sayers are to be congratulated on a translation which is plain prose, on an introduction and notes which really present the text, and on sub-editing the text in a way which much increases its accessibility.' Peter Hackett, Month 'The translation is clear and unfussy, up-to-date but not colloquial.' Edmund King, University of Sheffield, Journal of Ecclesiastical History
