Description: Review
"Cambridge University Press did a splendid job of producing this book, which would have required sensitive handling through the press. Professor Newton's masterpiece will, however, find a place in research libraries where - akin to the studies of E. A. Lowe and Herbert Bloch - it will be a seminal contribution for investigating the history and literary culture of one of medieval Europe's great intellectual and religious centers." Church History "Even more remarkable than Newtonas elegant new outline for the scriptas development are the detailed and insightful comments on the scores of individual Cassinese MSS that Newton uses... Newton's rich comments on the great variety and diverse appearances of the works written at Monte Cassino in the period make his study a cultural history" Catholic Historical Review "Newton's book offers a new paradigm for the development of script in the Middle Ages" Speculum-a Jrnl of Medieval Studies Oct 2001 "The extensive citations, the codicological commentaries, the abundant and well-produced plates, and the rich analysis make Newton's book the most commplete published record of the scriptorium of Montecassion, an outstanding contribution to understanding medieval monastic culture, and a model continuation of Lowe's palaeographic method, in which script is a register of culture." The Catholic Historical Review Oct 2001
