Excerpt from The History of Newenham Abbey, in the County of Devon The monastic establishments of this country rank among the most interesting objects to which a student of its antiquities can direct his attention. Whether these widely extended and magnificent foundations are viewed in connexion with the re ligious or the political history of the nation, with its civil and domestic institutions, or with the art and sciences which adorn an empire, their rise, their progress, and their dissolution, are equally important subjects for consideration. But leaving the general View of monachism to those authors who treat of the subject at large, this humble volume will attempt to record the particular and local history of one of the numerous monasteries which existed in the county of Devon.
