This session will include literary, historical, toponymic, and economic studies of female and male Cistercian houses: cartularies created by English Cistercian nuns, shedding light on their production, purpose, and the ‘memories’ prioritised; the meaning of toponymic surnames in English and Welsh abbeys that were either the names of other Cistercian monasteries or places where they held property, and their possible meaning; and the detached estates of the small Cistercian abbey of Sallay (NW Yorkshire), a more common feature of monastic estates than is currently understood.
