Charters of St Paul's, London by S. E. Kelly

Book Description

St Paul's was the principal church of London from its foundation in A. D. 604. This volume is an edition of all the surviving documentary material from St Paul's from the seventh century to 1066, with expert analysis and commentary on the history of the bishops and the cathedral community within the city and diocese, considered against the background of London's history during this period. The medieval archives of St Paul's suffered at times from neglect, and as a result the majority of the Anglo-Saxon charters of the bishop and chapter are preserved only as fragments in the notebooks of two seventeenth-century scholars who studied a crucial manuscript before it disappeared at the time of the Commonwealth. These excerpts are here edited with full diplomatic and historical commentary, which makes it possible to resurrect to some extent the full documents. The edition of the charters is prefaced by an extended introduction which provides an important new synthesis of the history of London and St Paul's in the Anglo-Saxon period, complete with an extensive bibliography.

Charters of Christ Church Canterbury by S. E. Kelly Charters of Christ Church Canterbury, Hardback (September 2013)

This edition collects all the surviving records and title-deeds from the archbishopric and cathedral church of Canterbury from its foundation in 597 to 1066. They are a vital source for English political, ecclesiastical and socio-economic history and for the development of the landscape and the English language in that same period.

Charters of Glastonbury Abbey by S. E. Kelly Charters of Glastonbury Abbey, Hardback (September 2012)

This is the first scholarly edition of the surviving Anglo-Saxon charters of Glastonbury Abbey, with a study of the records of lost charters, and a comprehensive introduction synthesising the evidence for the history of this important monastery from the seventh century to the Norman Conquest.

Charters of Peterborough Abbey by S. E. Kelly Charters of Peterborough Abbey, Hardback (May 2009)

This first edition of the Anglo-Saxon archive of the Benedictine monastery at Peterborough includes royal diplomas, an Old English will and a series of spectacular post-Conquest forgeries. The earlier documents overturn our understanding of an earlier house known as Medeshamstede, and shed light on the fate of the East Midlands under Danish rule.
