Meet the Monks and the Nuns of Medieval England

Charterhouse Square, London EC1M 6AN
Date and Time
5 April 2023
10:00am - 4:00pm

Join us for this free drop-in session for a fascinating insight into the wonderful world of the Cloister and Abbey here at Charterhouse, founded in 1371.

Visitors will be taken back in time when Abbeys, Priories and Monasteries covered the land, all home to different Orders of Monks and Nuns.

Find out the similarities & differences between the Orders.

Do YOU know what differentiates a Carthusian from a Dominican, or a Benedictine from a Franciscan? Many Orders of Monks and Nuns will be represented, including some Military Orders such as the infamous Templars.

There will be an array of fine artefacts, objects for handling and discussion, ‘Know your Saints’, Books of Hours and the Holy Office of 8 Services, a Medieval Altar and the daily life of a Carthusian brother at Charterhouse.

FREE Drop-in Sessions | 10.30am – 1pm and 2pm – 4pm
