Abstract

The proposed session presents some of the research undertaken by members of the newly founded Monastic Lancashire Research Group, which aims to research the monastic houses of Lancashire, while promoting collaborations between scholars working in this field. The four papers listed below will examine aspects of the patronage and the financial administration and management of two Lancashire Abbeys (Furness and Whalley), based on their surviving compoti, bursars’ accounts, and taxation records.
