Special attention is given to the 126 monks from this group promoted to the doctorate in theology and canon law. The author has used a wide range of sources, discussed thoroughly in the introduction, in the preparation of this work. Important primary sources include university, faculty, and collegiate records, papal registers, abbatial lists, minutes of general chapters and church councils, necrologies and chartularies. The register is offered as a service to historians of both the medieval university and of monastic life. It contributes to a better knowledge of the role religious orders played at the universities and of the effect university studies had on monastic life.
