1. The central parts of this piece are adapted with permission from what is, as I write, my still
forthcoming "Fraud and its Consequences: Savaric of Bath and the Reform of Glastonbury,"
The Archaeology and History of Glastonbury Abbey, ed. James Carley and
Lesley Abrams (Woodbridge, Suffolk: Boydell & Brewer, 1991), pp. 273-283. Wanting to
avoid distracting footnotes, I have attempted to make sources clear within the text itself, but those
wanting editions and specific page references for my medieval quotations will find them properly
cited in the article above. The dispatch from Eustace Chapuys to Charles V will be found in
Gayangos, ed., Calendar of State Papers, Spanish IV2 (London, 1882), 22-28.
