32 BLAIR, John Church in Anglo-Saxon Society. Second Printing in dustjacket
Oxford University Press, Oxford , 2005, ISBN:0198226950 
BLAIR, John. The Church in Anglo-Saxon Society. Oxford : Oxford University Press, (2005). Second Printing. Pp (6),[vii]-xix,(1),[1]-604. With a few illustrations in the text. 8vo, dark blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. William John Blair, FSA, FBA (b. March 4, 1955, Woking, Surrey). "From the impact of the first monasteries in the seventh century, to the emergence of the local parochial system five hundred years later, the Church was a force for change in Anglo-Saxon society. It shaped culture and ideas, social and economic behaviour, and the organization of landscape and settlement. The Church in Anglo-Saxon Society traces how the widespread foundation of monastic sites ('minsters') during c.670-730 gave the recently pagan English new ways of living, of exploiting their resources, and of absorbing European culture, as well as opening new spiritual and intellectual horizons. Through the era of Viking wars, and the tenth-century reconstruction of political and economic life, the minsters gradually lost their wealth, their independence, and their role as sites of high culture, but grew in stature as foci oflocal society and eventually towns. After 950, with the increasing promine nce of manors, manor-houses, and village communities, a new and much largercategory of small churches were founded, endowed, and rebuilt: the parish churches of the emergent eleventh- and twelfth-century local parochial system. In this innovative study, John Blair brings together written, topographical, and archaeological evidence to build a multi-dimensional picture of what local churches and local communities meant to each other in early England."- - from the dj.
