Review

"Containing copies of the Regularis Concordia, the Rule of St Benedict, homilies, prognostics and much else besides, Cotton Tiberius A.III is a vital witness to the ecclesiastical culture of late Anglo-Saxon England. Tracey-Anne Cooper’s study subjects this complicated book to the wide-ranging forensic analysis that it requires, teasing out the significance of its many items individually and collectively. The author thereby sheds a searching light of the belief and culture of three successive generations of churchmen, re-evaluating the nature and duration, not to mention the apparent contradictions, of the Anglo-Saxon Benedictine reform movement and scrutinizing the evolving priorities of its leading figures."

Richard Gameson, Durham University

“As an in-depth study of a particular manuscript this study has a number of strengths.” (Julia Barrow, in Francia-Recensio, 3, 2016)
