Beschreibung

In the Catholic countries of seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century Europe, communities of monks and nuns were growing in number and wealth. They constructed vast buildings, dominated education, and played a large part in the practice and patronage of learning, music, and the arts. This lavishly-illustrated book offers a unique, comparative description of these communities--their wealth, growth, life, and importance--and then explains their catastrophic decline and fall between 1650 and 1815 by reforming rulers, the 'Enlightenment', and the French Revolution. Derek Beales, Professor Emeritus of Modern History, Cambridge, is a Fellow of both the Royal Historical Society and the British Academy. He has published numerous historical monographs including a book on musical history entitled, Mozart and the Habsburgs (Reeding, 1993) as well as articles in the New York Review of Books and the Times Literary Supplement.

Pressestimmen

'A major revision of a central area of scholarship ... This is a study of the first importance for the period, and no one writing in the future will be able to ignore it. It is also very attractively written: concise, lucid and cogent.' Tim Blanning, University of Cambridge 'Derek Beale's Prosperity and Plunder, beautifully produced and illustrated, is as elegiac a book as I have read in ages. I was informed, saddened and enraged in equal proportions.' John Morrill, BBC History Magazine '... this is a book which should be read by any historian or general reader who supposes monasteries to be dull, inert institutions, cut off from their political and social settings.' Times Literary Supplement 'This is an excellent book, lucidly written, wonderfully illustrated, and beautifully produced. It is also an important one.' Church Times 'This handsomely produced and wonderfully illustrated book is much broader and more interesting than its title and timescale suggest.' European Review of History 'Derek Beales's important and impressively presented and illustrated book is written with a strong sense of mission. ... impressively wide-ranging.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History 'This handsomely produced and wonderfully illustrated book is much broader and more interesting than its title and timescale suggests. It fills a huge gap in its field with admirable skill, sympathy and learning.' European History 'Derek Beale's important and impressively presented and illustrated book is written with a strong sense of mission. ... impressively wide-ranging'. Journal of Ecclesiastical History 'This handsome and well-illustrated volume is a distinguished monument to the monasticism of the ancient regime.' The Historical Journal '... precise analysis of evolving policies ...'. Historical Journal
