INTRODUCTION
Jocelin of Brakelond's Chronicle takes us to the heart of the medieval world. His monastery of Bury St Edmunds was not a withdrawn community, secluded and segregated from ordinary lufe, such as the modern mind conjures up, but a center of political power and influence.
The Abbey in debt
I have been concerned here to record what I know from personal experience of the events that took place in St Edmund's church in my time, describing the bad deeds as well as the good, to provide both warning and example.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0192838954, Paperback)

This narrative of events between the years 1173 and 1202--as recorded by Jocelin of Brakelond, a monk who lived in the abbey of Bury St. Edmunds, in the region of West Suffolk--affords many unique insights into the life of a medieval religious community. It depicts the daily worship in the abbey church and the beliefs and values shared by the monks, as well as the whispered conversations, rumors, and disagreements within the cloister--and the bustling life of the market-town of Bury, just outside the abbey walls. This edition offers the first modern translation from the Latin to appear since 1949.
