8vo - 20.5 x 13.5 cm.; xxi - 368 pp. Both covers and text edges show soiling and minor wear. First published in 1913 by Epworth Press of London, this book has become an important one in monastic studies. Foreword by David Knowles along with Workman's preface from 1927. Workman himself was a Methodist minister with doctorates in Literature and Divinity. He writes with the eyes and sensitivity of a historian with perhaps too much emphasis on the radicalness of the monastic calling which can lead to a glossing over of the wisdom and faithfulness inherent in such an obedient and surrendered life.
Title: The Evolution of the Monastic Ideal from the Earliest Times Down to the Coming of the Friars: A Second Chapter in the History of Christian Renunciation.
