Chapter Summary

A theme that has re-appeared throughout this book has been the importance of patronage, whether it be the patronage of Plympton Priory by the bishops of Exeter or the patronage exercised by the canons themselves in regards to the churches in their gift. The fourteenth century witnessed another development in the story of patronage and the priory. The patronage of a religious house involved a number of other benefits in addition to the right to enjoy the temporal income of the house-which were rather substantial in the case of Plympton Priory-and to make presentations to the monastery's churches during vacancies. The patronage conflict involving Plympton Priory began with a corrody, or rather, with the prior's refusal to grant a corrody to a royal servant.
