Tintern Abbey Monmouthshire

The abbey of Tintern was founded upon the 9th day of May 1131, by Walter Fitz Richard, lord of Nether Gwent and Striguil, for monks of the Cistercian order. All abbeys of this order were to be built in places remote from towns, all the churches were to be hallowed in honour of Our Lady, the buildings were to be of the severest simplicity, and no paintings or images were allowed. Each new house had to be colonized from an existing one by twelve monks at least and the abbot as thirteenth. The lay brothers were not mere servants, as in other orders, but were of the same social position as the monks, they took the three monastic vows, had a separate quire in the church and a separate dorter and frater. This book contains old images which are all originals and thus some might be slightly blurry.
