Bishop Aethelwold

Full Product Description

A thelwold's life and his political and ecclesiastical importance in the 10th-century reformation receive thorough scholarly scrutiny in this appraisal of his life and work. The studies include a comparison of A thelwold's career with that of other European monastic reformers; a study of A thelwold's foundation at Abingdon; and of his involvement with the political crises of the 10th century. A thelwold's skills as a scholar are assessed through surviving Latin and Old Englist texts, and as a teacher from the writings of his pupils. The scholarly work of his foundations is highlighted by a detailed study of the text of the 'Benedictional of St A thelwold'; other essays look at the music and sculpture performed and produced at A thelwold's foundations. Contributors: PATRICK WORMALD, ALAN THACKER, BARBARA YORKE, MICHAEL LAPIDGE, ANDREW PRESCOTT, MARY BERRY, ELIZABETH COATSWORTH
