QuotationGasquet's English Monastic Life [Note 29: Abbot (Cardinal Francis Aidan) Gasquet's (1848-1929) English Monastic Life, 1904. He was the Abbot of Downside Abbey, Bath, England, and Prefect of Vatican Archives from 1918.] which I am skimming through, though plain and pedestrian in its tone, is a very interesting book-an extremely attractive book because of its material.
