Title : Theater-going Nuns in Rural Devon? [In 1329 the new bishop of Exeter ordered the canonesses at Canonsleigh Abbey to observe strict enclosure. In part he warned that they must avoid worldly shows ("spectacula"). Young suggests that he may have had in mind lay-sponsored events in Exeter like the satiric "ludus" against the city's shoemakers which later offended the bishop in 1352. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
