The London Charterhouse

2002

Abstract

This monograph on the London Charterhouse, a Carthusian monastery founded in 1371 just outside the walled City, includes recent excavation evidence of the inner court of the Charterhouse. The result is a new, fully illustrated account of the development of the monastery, the pre-monastic use of the site as a Black Death cemetery, the monastic economy and diet, and the impact of the sub-urban location on the reclusive Carthusian order. The post-Dissolution setting of the 16th-century mansion and the hospital established in 1613 is also examined in this look at one of London’s most fascinating historic sites.
