Publisher's Description

This book presents editions of two of the best known Anglo-Saxon pontificals, the so-called Egbert Pontifical' (Paris, BN lat. 10575) and the Sidney Sussex Pontifical' (Cambridge, Sidney Sussex College 100). The pontifical was a bishop's book which contained the various ceremonies which ony a bishop could perform: consecration of a church or cemetary, consecration of all orders of clergy and of abbots and abbesses, and the coronation of a king. The various pontifical services in these two manuscripts, therefore, help to illustrate the nature of these solemn ceremonies in Anglo-Saxon England, and are a valuable index of the state of the English chuch in the 10th century.
