This book examines the Christian thinking expressed in monastic gardens in the mediaeval period and specific types of monastic garden and the plants contained therein. It follows with an account of known gardens and what became of them. The book concludes with reflections on the lessons that modern times can take from the monks. Francis Beswick is a semi-retired schoolteacher and is a writer on Religious Studies. He has passionate interests in Religious Studies, History and gardening, so this book grew out of these interests. He is deeply concerned about the environment and believes that the way to save the Earth from ruin is for people to address the spiritual faults that give rise to materialism. He is married with four children, one of whom is still at home.
