The documents in this section illustrate the realities of monastic recruitment and economy in the later middle ages. They shed light on the qualifications and commitment required from new recruits to male and female monasteries; they indicate some of the economic problems faced by religious houses in the changing conditions of the period; and they also provide a flavour of the responses adopted by monasteries in the face of these difficulties.
