Abstract

310 Reviews A map of the Precinct of St Paul's has been included (p. 71). Some of the names of colleges and chantries appear, but the map has been borrowed from John Schofield (another London scholar) and is thus not directly related to the text. It would have been preferable to have the map specially commissioned for the book; I wanted a better sense of how all of the chantries, chapels, and altars mentioned fitted into the space within the cathedral building. While the index is somewhat perfunctory ­ consisting largely of proper names and entries like `mass', `ordination', and `library', alerting the reader not to expect that any `concepts' will be dealt with ­ there is an impressively extensive bibliography, reflecting the thorough research that underpins Rousseau's study. Despite my criticisms, impressive research is what Saving the Souls of Medieval London offers and what it successfully delivers. An appendix outlining all the known chantries, and the names, dates, and places associated with them, the chief product of Rousseau's research, is also included and this no doubt will serve as an essential resource, as will the book itself, for all scholars of the religious history of late medieval
