Medieval Irish saints' lives : an introduction to Vitae sanctorum Hiberniae by Richard Sharpe( Book )

18 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of three important late medieval collections of saints' lives. The manuscripts, written in Latin and, for the most part relating to the lives of Irish saints, have never before been subject to critical examination. The book analyzes such questions as when and where the lives were compiled
Life of St Columba by Adamnan( Book )

9 editions published between 1991 and 2005 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although related to one of the ruling families of Ireland, Columba (c. 521-97) became a central figure in the "Age of Saints" by setting out from his native land and founding his famous monastery on the island of Iona. It was from here that priests and monks played a key role in converting the Picts of Scotland, here that countless penitents came on pilgrimages and that the King of Dalriada (Argyll) came to be consecrated. While essentially a work of hagiography focusing on St. Columba's miraculous powers and saintliness, this biography also illuminates the history of the early church in Ireland and Scotland and the impact of the monastic movement on the spread of Christianity throughout Britain and Europe. - Publisher

10 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Titulus : identifying medieval Latin texts : an evidence-based approach by Richard Sharpe( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This essay on the fundamental principles of medieval bibliography argues that the tituli and colophons accompanying a text in manuscript should be treated as evidence for the text's bibliographical data and therefore recorded in descriptive catalogues of manuscripts and in bibliographical repertories of texts. The value of medieval library catalogues in showing medieval bibliographical perceptions is illustrated. Bibliographical co-ordinates of author, title, and incipit are discussed in some detail, and the historical accumulation of bibliographical tradition is examined. Reference books intended to assist manuscript cataloguers and students of medieval Latin texts are subjected to criticism; an annotated handlist of such books is included. Many texts in the middle ages were ascribed to various writers, and the habits of titling were far from constant, but the evidence of the manuscripts provides a better basis for understanding the changing perception of texts than has been recognized in the reference literature. Two extended examples demonstrate, on the one hand, a text consistently ascribed in the manuscripts but much misattributed by modern scholars and, on the other, one whose authorship and title were the subject of much medieval alteration but can none the less still be recovered from the tituli." --Book Jacket

7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Canterbury and the Norman conquest : churches, saints, and scholars, 1066-1109 by Canterbury and the Norman Conquest( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When William I and his army arrived in Canterbury they found a powerful and long-established ecclesiastical centre, whose traditions and culture differed in many respects from those of Normandy. The Conquest brought dramatic change: Archbishop Stigand was deprived in 1070 to be replaced by the Norman abbot Lanfranc; Canterbury Cathedral itself was burnt down in 1067 and rebuilt in a Norman style. But in the following years Canterbury's position in the English church was preserved and enhanced and Norman churchmen came to appreciate more fully the importance of their English inheritance. These original essays provide a reassessment of this subject reflecting modern interests and research. They discuss the political setting of Canterbury and its churches, both locally and nationally, the aims and achievements of its leaders, the cults of its saints and many aspects of its artistic achievement. Together they bring into focus what is a crucial test case for the impact of the Norman Conquest on English politics, society and culture
