Abstract:
Christopher Brooke (pp ix-xi) sets the scene for this major conference in his Prologue; Martin Biddle (1-31) sheds new light in 'Archaeology, architecture, and the cult of saints in Anglo-Saxon England', cataloguing the surviving evidence from over 20 sites, especially St Albans, Repton, and Winchester. David Rollason continues the theme (32-43), 'The shrines of saints in later Anglo-Saxon England: distribution and significance'; and L A S Butler (44-50), in 'Church dedications and the cults of Anglo-Saxon saints in England', renews attempts to disentangle genuinely early dedications. A study of modern pilgrims, their habits and material manifestations, is provided by Philip Rahtz & Lorna Watts (51-73). Ian Wood (74-9) treats 'The audience of architecture in post-Roman Gaul', from homilies of dedication. Richard Morris's topic is 'Alcuin, York, and the alma sophia (80-9), an essay in reconstructing the location of Aelberht's church' (Christ Church?). Carol Heitz (90-100), in 'The iconography of architectural form', relates early med and Carolingian art and architecture to liturgical books and practices. Rosemary Cramp's subject (101-4) is 'The furnishing and sculptural decoration of Anglo-Saxon churches', showing that some schemes were traditional, others precocious. David Parsons (105-20) treats `Sacrarium: ablution drains in early medieval churches' (clues to altar positions). 'Recognizing Christian origins: an archaeological and historical dilemma', from Charles Thomas (121-5), indicates the difficulties of finding early church sites and of demonstrating 'continuity'; while Olaf Olsen (126-30) offers 'Is there a relationship between pagan and Christian places of worship in Scandinavia?' Michael Hare and Ann Hamlin (131-45), in 'The study of early church architecture in Ireland: an Anglo-Saxon viewpoint, with an appendix on documentary evidence for round towers', confine themselves to stone buildings. Richard Gem goes back to first principles (146-55) in discussing 'ABC: how should we periodize Ango-Saxon architecture?' Warwick Rodwell (156-75) illuminates the basic work of building (putlogs, 'lifts', and the like) in 'Anglo-Saxon church building: aspects of design and construction'. Outlines of church development in Northamptonshire are Hugh Richmond's topic (176-87). Carolyn Heighway and Richard Bryant essay 'A reconstruction of the 10th century church of St Oswald, Gloucester' (188-95), while Birthe Kjølbye-Biddle (196-209) offers 'The 7th century minster at Winchester interpreted' (with particular reference to units of measurement). Finally, Christopher J Brooke offers some new technological help (210-17) in 'Ground-based remote sensing for the archaeological study of churches' (photographic image enhancement).
