Pressestimmen"...Logan has asked a modest but interesting and revealing question of the records of ecclesiastical history and, after exhaustive research, offers up a very thorough answer...Many compelling human vignettes are offered in this highly readable book." Choice "Logan has produced a welcome, one might almost say definitive study of a neglected aspect of English monastic history. There are five appendixes, a select bibliography, and indexes could have been fuller and subjects. The subject index could have been fuller and better arranged, for the book contains much incidental detail of interest to a wider audience." F.G. Cowley, American Historical Review "...this study is to be most warmly welcomed as the first authoritative account of a much-neglected field; its findings must now be taken into account by all scholars of monastic history. "...the collection and organization of the hard data found in the apprendix will provide a good base for the thoughtful reader's interpretive powers." Albion "...it is a great relief and pleasure to review Professor Logan's balanced and sympathetic study of runaway religious in medieval England. Dr. Logan's book is a very welcome addition to our knowledge and his researches do serve to bring a lot of light to what has been a subject full of individual anecdotes and badly in need of a balanced overall survey. His careful, judicial and well written account of his findings has produced a book which anyone studying medieval relgious life should read." Richard Copsey, The Medieval Review "...the collection and organization of the hard data found in the appendix will provide a good base for the thoughtful reader's interpretive powers."
