New Resources from the Syon Abbey Associates

Under the ‘Resources’ menu above, please find several new and very valuable resources generously offered by John Adams of the Syon Abbey Associates (London). They include:

  • An updated “List of Extant MSS and Books.” This is the most comprehensive list of surviving books from Syon yet.
  • A detailed study titled “Syon Abbey: Its Herbal, Medical Books and Care of the Sick: Healthcare in a Mixed Mediaeval Monastery,” by John Adams (2015)
  • A short illustrated guide to the stay of Dame Agnes Jordan and the Bridgettine Nuns of Syon Abbey at Southlands in the post-Dissolution period, 1539-1546, by John Adams
  • A transcription of several folios from Thomas Betson’s notebook, of parts of his work A Ryght Profitable Treatyse, transcribed by Stuart Forbes and John Adams

Thanks to John Adams for making these publicly available!
