This session is a prosopographical look at Regular canons and canonesses in the British Isles based on recent research. The session will highlight the importance of these religious men and women within their cloisters, localities, and regions. The first paper will explore the Augustinian canons in Lincolnshire and their relationship in the wider Augustinian and ecclesiastical community; the second paper will examine the exchange and development of connections between the Augustinian canonesses and their families and benefactors; and the third paper will identify the education and careers of Augustinian and Premonstratensian canons in the Northwest of England to place the individuals more firmly on the religiously, ethnically, and socially diverse map of medieval British Isles.
