Chapter Summary

The Augustinian canons who resided at the priory over the centuries, whether they always desired to be or not, were intimately connected with a range of groups in the medieval West Country. An exploration of the foundation, endowment, and administration of Plympton Priory increases our knowledge of the links between institutions and society in the diocese of Exeter in this period. Such an analysis also contributes to current scholarly discussions about the roles, obligations, and spiritual goals of the Augustinian canons. The subject of this book is the Augustinian Priory of Saints Peter and Paul at Plympton, in the county of Devon, England. This priory was founded in 1121 by William Warelwast, Bishop of Exeter and became one of the richest Augustinian houses in England.
