Note Regarding Circaries
For the Order of Prémontré, a circary was a region, initially a geographical designation (province) to which several monasteries or priories belonged, and in which a circator (Lat. circumire, “to go around” or “to make a round”) or inspector went from one house to another.
For consistency, we have chosen the Latin name of a circary, eg., Westfaliae, Angliae australis, Romana, etc., as found in Josef Engel, ed., Grosser Historischer Weltatlas: Zweiter Teil: Mittelalter. Munich: Bayerischer Schulbuch-Verlag, 1979, p. 28.
