This is the first comprehensive study of the connections between the English and Continental churches during the tenth and eleventh centuries. Veronica Ortenberg draws on the whole range of narrative, liturgical, art-historical, and documentary sources to establish the strong and continuing links between England and the countries of Christian Europe in culture, spirituality, and art. Her analysis of the various areas of contact - France, Flanders, the German lands, Italy, Byzantium, and the Holy Land - highlights the central place of the English church in early medieval christendom. Dr Ortenberg's work places the later Anglo-Saxon church exactly where it saw itself belonging: in the mainstream of European culture. Handsomely illustrated with thirty-one carefully chosen plates, this is a work of wide-ranging scholarship, which deepens our understanding of medieval culture and religion.
