9780197261439: Charters of St Augustine's Abbey, Canterbury and Minster-in-Thanet (Anglo-Saxon Charters) (Vol 4)

The charters from the archive of St Augustine's Abbey, many very early indeed, provide crucial evidence about the history of the Anglo-Saxon church in Kent and the development of the documentary in process. A high proportion of the thirty-nine pre-Conquest charters which are edited in this volume, together with fourteen from another early foundation at Minster-in-Thanet, date from the seventh and eighth centuries.

The editor's Introduction sets the documents in their historical and diplomatic contexts and analyses the extent and nature of the contamination by later medieval scholars of the abbey. A detailed commentary is also provided on each text and important topics such as lost charter, the sequence of abbots, Kentish Kings and so on are discussed in seperate appendices.

This is the largest and most important collection to be published in the Anglo-Saxon Charters series.
