Abstract

In this session speakers will explore what sources can reveal about the material culture of monastic and mendicant orders. The first paper will use insights gleaned from the examination of the register of Athenry Dominican priory in Ireland; in the second paper the pre-and post- Dissolution records for one of the granges of Strata Florida Cistercian abbey will be used to investigate change and continuity on the monastic estate; the final paper will discuss the use of monuments, tombs, painted panels and other objects as sources by the Dominican order to write the history of their own order.
