Synopsis

St Dunstan, Archbishop of Canterbury (d.988), was celebrated in his own day as a scholar and churchman, a reviver of the monastic life, and a statesman. He was regarded as a saint from the moment he died, and his reputation remained high in the English Church throughout the middle ages.;In this work, a group of scholars discusses Dunstan and the places associated with him; his Classbook and Pontifical; and the architecture and arts of the book that flourished at Canterbury in his time. The landed estates that underlay such activities are examined; and a positive identification is offered of the author of the biography which spread Dunstan's fame far beyond the confines of Canterbury.
