?thelwold's existence and his political and ecclesiastical value within the 10th-century reformation obtain thorough scholarly scrutiny during this appraisal of his lifestyles and paintings. The experiences contain a comparability of ?thelwold's profession with that of alternative ecu monastic reformers; a research of ?thelwold's starting place at Abingdon; and of his involvement with the political crises of the tenth century. ?thelwold's talents as a pupil are assessed via surviving Latin and outdated Englist texts, and as a instructor from the writings of his students. The scholarly paintings of his foundations is highlighted by way of an in depth research of the textual content of the Benedictional of St ?thelwold; different essays examine the tune and sculpture played and produced at ?thelwold's foundations.Contributors: PATRICK WORMALD, ALAN THACKER, BARBARA YORKE, MICHAEL LAPIDGE, ANDREW PRESCOTT, MARY BERRY, ELIZABETH COATSWORTH
