Monks in motion: a prosopographical study of the English and Welsh Benedictines in exile, 1553-1800

This project will investigate the changing political role in England of English Benedictine monks abroad. After the banning of some central aspects of Roman Catholic practice, including the formation of communities of religious, the first English Benedictine monastery in exile was established in Douai (in northern France) in 1607. But even before this, there had been English novitiates who had joined European communities and entered religious life in Catholic countries such as Spain. Their transnational existence made them bridges between the Continent and England. To study these transnational networks, researchers will create a dynamic, searchable database of the membership and activities of English Benedictines from the reign of Mary I to 1800. The project, which will explore the position of the four monasteries defined as English institutions in Europe, will be crucial in reimagining the Catholic community during the period of religious proscription. An open source electronic database of all English Benedictines will allow a range of users, including family historians as well as scholars, to access material about each individual.
