Ecclesiastical Lordship, Seigneurial Power, and the Commercialization of Milling in Medieval England ePub

This book will present a detailed explanation of the role of the Benedictines, Cistercians and Augustinians in the development of the English milling industry from the late 11th to the mid 16th centuries. Focusing on the development of mill management techniques in more than 30 English religious houses, it discusses the role played by mill grants and their donors in the establishment of a range of different sized foundations, and how structures of mill lordship and patterns of mill innovation were primarily shaped by the size, wealth and arrangement of a house's estates.
