Regularis Concordia


Quick Reference

A code of monastic observance in England, approved by a Synod of Winchester some time between 970 and 973. According to Aelfric, it would appear that it was the work of St Ethelwold, though it was probably inspired by St Dunstan, to whom it was long attributed. Its provisions generally follow the Benedictine tradition.
