Founded within a decade of the Norman Conquest, Lewes’s Cluniac Priory of St Pancras was one of the largest, wealthiest and most influential monasteries in England, with vast landed estates that included 160 churches and chapels and supported around 100 monks. Graham Mayhew presents a comprehensive, illustrated account of the Priory and its architecture, art, liturgy and history, from the foundation and the first prior, the saintly Lanzo, to its destruction during the reign of Henry VIII.
