A Study of its History from the Twelfth Century to the French Revolution, with an Annotated Edition of the 1752 Catalogue (Medieval Church Studies 32; Citeaux: Studia et Documenta 15). "This book constitutes an excellent edition of an eighteenth-century library catalogue. Its introduction places the 1752 snapshot of the library in the context of its development, particularly as the expression of the life and spirituality of one of the most influential figures in the history of the Cistercian Order. The careful work of the edition follows a clear methodology, succinctly laid out...and well executed." (William Duba, Radboud Universiteit, The Medieval Review).
