Patrick coffin the other week recommended a book on the church of England’s rightful inheritance being Catholic and he mentioned the fact that the abbeys on the show downton abbey, used to be monasteries… But I can’t remember the name of it. As a former Anglican I would like to purchase it. I remember torn or cracked being in the title. Does anyone know what I am referring to?
Maybe not what you’re looking for, but I know of something close enough: Eamon Duffy’s The Stripping of the Altars.
I highly recommend ANYTHING by Eamon Duffy.
We have half destroyed abbeys all over England.
