Abstract: It is proved that the monoidal transform of an integral noetherian scheme with respect to a sheaf $ I$ of ideals is normal if and only if high powers of $ I$ are complete. The analogous theorem for linear systems is included, and as an application, it is proved that a rational singularity is absolutely isolated.
