Chapter Summary

This chapter re-constructs what little can be known through the examination of a sample group of canons from the fourteenth century. One issue that comes up again and again in discussions of the Augustinian canons is the extent to which they engaged in the cure of souls. The chapter explores what we know of the origins of individual canons and their links to the communities, the evidence for the participation of the canons of Plympton in the cure of souls, both in the capacity of beneficed clergy and in less formal roles. The methodology employed has been largely prosopographical in approach; that is, the group under discussion-the canons of Plympton Priory-are analyzed according to geographical origin, careers, and education.

Keywords:Augustinian Canons; fourteenth century; plympton priory
