The Religious Houses of London and Middlesex
Edited by Caroline M. Barron and Matthew Davies. Published 2007. ISBN 9781905165124
The Religious Houses of London and Middlesex brings together, for the first time, the remarkably detailed accounts of the sixty-five religious houses in London and Middlesex that were originally published by the Victoria County History in 1909 and 1969. These range from the larger and better known houses, such as Westminster abbey, to the many small cells and hospitals that were founded in and around London in the centuries before the Reformation. New material has been added for every house in the form of brief guides to recent research, along with revised lists of the heads of these institutions up to the Dissolution. There is also an entirely new introduction, which explores the significance of the religious houses in the spiritual and social life of the city and county during the half millennium of their existence.
