This is the first full edition of the canonization dossier of St. Gilbert of Sempringham, who died in 1189 and was canonized in 1202. It is a document of exceptional interest for the history of the canonization process in Rome, for the history of the one English religious Order of the Middle Ages, the Order of Sempringham, and for the biography of the founder himself, St. Gilbert. The order was founded to be primarily an Order of women, was confined to England, and so disappeared at the Reformation.
