Anglican Abbott: Dom Denys Prideaux, by Aidan Harker, sometime monk of Nashdom Abbey

Dom Denys Prideaux (1864-1934) was the first Abbot of Pershore, later Nashdom Abbey and was in effect the re-founder of the Benedictine Community on Caldey Island after the majority decided to leave the Church of England and be received into the Roman Catholic Church.

This book is the first detailed study of Dom Denys’ life and work and is based on his hitherto forgotten papers found by the author, sometime a monk of Nashdom, in the basement of the Abbey. These papers enabled the author to prepare an appreciation of Dom Denys’ work and influence based on original sources and is a significant contribution to twentieth-century Benedictine history.
