Glastonbury Abbey and the

English Benedictine Congregation

Although Glastonbury Abbey was suppressed in November 1539,  English Catholic Benedictine life survived the Reformation. This talk explores the story of the Benedictines and Glastonbury Abbey after 1539, tracing their history from the sixteenth century to the present day.
