9780851156101: St Cuthbert, his Cult and his Community to AD 1200

St Cuthbert is known to many as the the saintly bishop of Holy Island inthe 7th century, but he was also a figure of great political and territorial power. The book is divided into four sections, each dealing with different aspects of Cuthbert and his milieu. Among the topics investigated are the early Livesof the Saint, two by Bede himself, and his cult; Lindisfarne, its scriptorium and of course the famous Gospels; the sumptuous treasures gathered round the coffin, such as a portable altar and elaborately-worked silks, many of which are still preserved at Durham; and St Cuthbert's community at Chester-le-Street and Durham.

From the Back Cover:

Cuthbert, saintly bishop of Holy Island in the seventh century, who lived and died a hermit on the rocky island of Farne, was also a figure of great political and territorial power, in his life and even more so after his death. The studies in this book, ranging over the saint's life, Lindisfarne and its manuscripts, the treasures of the coffin, and the community and the cult, vividly convey Cuthbert's great influence, and his significance in the early history of England.
