'… these two volumes constitute a major contribution to the grand and continuing project of unlocking the Middle Ages.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History
'The invaluable volumes are astonishing compilations of information … No one working in English or Welsh medieval monastic history, and Cistercian history in particular, can afford to be without access to these fundamental volumes, and we can only be grateful to the compilers for providing us with such invaluable tools and such a rich mine of information.'
