Constable, Giles. Medieval Monasticism: A Select Bibliography. Toronto, University of Toronto Press, 1976. xx, 171 p. LC 75-42284. (Toronto Medieval Bibliographies, 6). ISBN 0-8020-2200-6.

Lists and annotates 1,036 books and articles in broad subject categories — history, economics, clothing, rules, education, works, vows, governance, etc. Concentrates on the cloistered orders and covers books in Western languages. The material is selected to provide a comprehensive view of monasticism rather than histories of individual houses or monks. "Reliable, intelligently planned and carefully cross-referenced" (RQ, XVII [Fall, 1977] , p. 74).
