Canons and Prebendaries

Secular Cathedral 
A cathedral in which the chapter was composed of canons who lived in their own houses and were not governed by a monastic rule. Nine such cathedrals existed in England between the 11th and 16th centuries.
Monastic Cathedral
In a monastic cathedral the internal government was that of the religious order to which the chapter belonged and all the members kept perpetual residence.
