medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture
Laura, you would probably find useful the extensive thematic bibliography maintained by Sr Aquinata Böckmann:
    http://www.osb.org/gen/index.html#bibliog

It is roughly keyed to chapters of the Rule of St Benedict. For example, on reception to the convent and the profession ceremony:

On private ownership:
    http://www.osb.org/rb/rbbib/brb33.html#P0_0

The main page has a lot of other links of varying relevance. -- Paul

If anyone can direct me to material on life in medieval Benedictine convents I'd be grateful. As that's a rather broad brief, I should say that what especially interests me is what happened on entry to the convent, whether the nuns continued to own personal possessions, and what happened during  the ceremony of profession (I'm aware of Julie Hotchin's 'The Nun's Crown' but not much else).  

Thanks in advance,

Laura
