Dustjacket has shelfwear and rubbing. ; Winchester Studies, 4.III: the Anglo-Saxon Minsters of Winchester; 1.26 x 11.02 x 8.82 Inches; 300 pages; Property and Piety comprises an edition and translation, with extensive commentary, of thirty-three Anglo-Saxon and Norman documents relating to the topography and minsters of early medieval Winchester. These texts record the physical effects on the city of the foundation and expansion of the three neighbouring minsters, and also of the removal of the New Minster to Hyde in about 1110. They record political, religious, and cultural aspects of the tenth-century reform of Benedictine monasticism, of which Winchester was a leading centre. The splendid New Minster refoundation charter, composed by Bishop AEthelwold and granted by King Edgar in 966, is here translated for the first time. A full examination is also made of the old minster confirmation charter, probably fabricated in the reign of AEthelred. The volume also includes all Anglo-Saxon grants of land within Winchester and a reappraisal of the evidence for the beneficial hidation of the surrounding estate of Chilcomb. This volume is part of a three-book study in the Winchester Studies series of the Anglo-Saxon Minsters of Winchester, including 4.i, The Anglo-Saxon Minsters by Martin Biddle and Birthe Kjolbye-Biddle, and 4.ii, The Cult of St Swithun by Michael Lapidge.
