Summary

This volume collects from many different sources an important group of writings by Francis Wormald (1904-1972), a scholar and teacher whose great contribution to medieval studies owes its originality and distinction to the unrivalled understanding of manuscripts, or all kinds and of all periods. The eleven works in the present collection relate to Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages and include Wormald's important of the Gospels of St Augustine and the Utrecht Psalter. The remainder deal with Anglo-Saxon art, especially in manuscripts, of the tenth and eleventh centuries and its influence on later English art. Thye include most of the writings which established Wormald's reputation as a leading authority on the period, with the original English text of an essay previously published only in French. A preface and bibliographical notes by J.J.G. Alexander introduce the collection and acquaint the reader with significant later publications.
