The purpose of this study is to investigate the condition of early sixteenth-oentury monasticism in England as it appears from the evidence in the financial accounts of the bursars of Whalley Abbey. The Whalley Abbey compoti provide a particularly fruitful field of study since a rather considerable body of documents from this Cistercian monastery have been preserved and a large number of these documents have already been published.
