Definitions for "Abbot of Crossraguel"
The Abbot of Crossraguel was the leader of the Cluniac monastic community of Crossraguel Abbey, near Maybole in Carrick, south-west Scotland. It was founded in 1260s by Donnchadh mac Gille Brigte, earl of Carrick with monks from Paisley Abbey. Owing to the lack of surving records and its distance from the core of Lowland Scotland in the western Gàidhealtachd, few of the abbots are known by name.
