Kinder, Terryl N., ed., Perspectives for an Architecture of Solitude: Essays on Cistercians, Art and Architecture in Honour of Peter Fergusson (Medieval Church Studies 11; Cîteaux Studia et Documenta 13); Turnhout and Cîteaux, Brepols and Cîteaux, Commentarii Cistercienses, 2004; paper; pp. xii, 409; 232 b/w figures, 2 colour plates; R.R.P. not known; ISBN 2503516920.

Hence, it is a broad collection. Most, but not all, of the essays relate to the Cistercians, and the areas covered include England, France, Scotland, the Holy Land, Wales, Ireland, the Low Countries, Germany, and Spain. Conrad Rudolph opens the collection with a study of
