Dr Francis Young spoke on this subject to our members during a recent Zoom lecture. It happened also to be the Feast of St Edmund to which he alludes at the beginning of the talk. Dr Young gives a masterly overview of the history of monasticism in Suffolk. The story of the rise, fall and re-establishment of religious life in Suffolk is in many ways a reflection of what happened elsewhere in England.
