List of Carthusian Monasteries

This is a list of Carthusian monasteries, or charterhouses, containing both extant and dissolved monasteries of the Carthusian Order for monks and nuns, arranged by location under their present countries. Also listed are the "houses of refuge" used by the communities expelled from France in the early 20th century.

Since the establishment of the Carthusians in 1084 there have been more than 300 monastic foundations, and this list aims to be complete. Dates of foundation and suppression are given where known. The 25 extant charterhouses, 19 for monks and 6 for nuns, are indicated by bold type.

Famous quotes containing the words list of and/or list:

    Thirty—the promise of a decade of loneliness, a thinning list of single men to know, a thinning brief-case of enthusiasm, thinning hair.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    All is possible,
    Who so list believe;
    Trust therefore first, and after preve,
    As men wed ladies by license and leave,
    All is possible.
    Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503?–1542)
