1539 and the Dissolution of a Monestery. Geoffrey Moorhouse. 2008, Orion books ISBN 978-0-7538-2575-4
Much more than a story of how the Act of Suppression efffected one religous community this adds an insight into the very much alive state of monastic life in late medieval England and how individuals and communities survived the turbulent political and religous shifts of Tudor policy. Excellent.
