The area directly subject to an archbishop in the British Isles
is indicated by pink surface
coloring. In England, Dorchester alternated with Lincoln, and
Chester with Coventry and
Lichfield, as the seats of the respective dioceses. Many
monasteries not mentioned in
this map were located in the seats of archbishoprics and
bishoprics. The names not
underlined were those of monasteries belonging for the most part
either to the Cluniac,
or to the Carthusian order. The double underlining of Gloucester
indicates that both, the
Benedictine and the Augustinians had monasteries there.
