Excerpt

The Historian and Character provides the theme of this collection: almost all the studies which follow illustrate the author's concern with human problems and personality. They also illustrate his concern with medieval monasticism, medieval thought, and monastic historians of the modern world. They are designed within this frame to show both the author's original scholarship and his appeal to a wide public. Each article is labelled with the year of its first publication, and no attempt has been made to bring them syste­ matically up to date. But the opportunity has been taken to correct minor errors, to make the references more or less uniform, to note cross-references within the volume, and occasionally to refer to an important book or article that has appeared since these articles were written. Such additions are given in square brackets. Each article, furthermore, is complete; nothing has been omitted except the bibliography of Abbot Cuthbert Butler which originally ap­ peared with no. 12. No. 9, "'The Monastic Buildings of England'", is here printed for the first time.
