"When it was first published, Professor Braunfels' book at once established itself as a definitive work. For this edition he revised the text and added a new chapter on the cathedral-monasteries of England. After tracing the beginning of monasticism in the West, the narrative details in turn the architecture of St Gall, Cluny, the Cisterians, the Cathusians, the Mendicant orders, and the abbey buildings and complexes of the baroque period. The conclusion covers the monastic revival of recent times and Le Corbusier's La Tourette. An appendix gives the original religious rules which dictated the form of monasteries . . .
