Format: Paperback
Having personal experience of the Benedictines of Nashdom, this made interesting if sad reading. The demise of the community is now in sight and this is painful to those who have loved it over the years. Ms Duncan's research is very authoritative and although she misses a few of the nuances in the 1960's and 1970's her reflections are erudite and a good read. Sad however for me who knew the community intimately for a time.

Format: Paperback
This is an honest account of the strange phenomenon of C20 Anglican monasticism, which almost came to and end when the community sought admission into the RC Church. This is the story of the remnant who wanted to continue the experiment and explains why it was doomed to failure.

HASH(0x8d3d9348) out of 5 stars An excellent read 30 April 2014
By John R. Robison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an important study of the Religious Life in the Anglican Communion, the Benedictine expression of it in particular. It outlines the life of a group of dedicated Anglo-Papalists in their attempt to bring about Christian unity under the Barc of Peter, that is the Papacy. At times sad, dramatic, and humerus the narrative of this unique group of men unfolds. Dunstan takes the time to explore the lives and personalities of several members, including the liturgical scholar Dom Gregory Dix.
