Excerpt from Memorials of the Cathedral and Priory of Christ in Canterbury

The aim of the authors of the present book is to give a trustworthy, readable, and compendious account of the Cathedral from the earliest times to the present day. To do this within the compass of a single octavo volume it has been necessary to confine the range of view strictly to the church and its custodians. Thus, since the book does not claim to be a history of the See of Canterbury, little is said about the Archbishops except when they came into contact with the defacto governing body - prior and convent before, and dean and chapter after, the Reformation. To write a history of the great Benedictine priory of Christ Church would require a separate volume; but its fortunes and internal economy are sketched in the following pages with some fulness of detail, and this we believe to be a distinctive feature of the present book. Throughout an honest attempt has been made - to go to first-hand sources of information, and the recent rearrangement of the Cathedral archives has Opened out some which have not hitherto been avail able. Full advantage has been taken of this Oppor tunity, with the result that the authors have been able to incorporate in their book some fresh matter, and much more which, if not absolutely new, has hitherto been known only to a few.
