Charters of the new minster, Winchester

£135.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

244pp. New and unread edition of the Charters of the Anglo-Saxon New Minster at Winchester including nine b/w plates and map. No Dust Jacket (as issued). No signs of shelf wear. Clean and tightly bound. Blurb: The archive of the New Minster at Winchester contains thirty-four charters, among them four of the most important texts for our understanding of the last century and a half of Anglo-Saxon England. The two surviving wills of pre-Conquest kings are preserved only in this archive. King Alfred's will gives us further insight into the mindset of this most famous of English kings, while the likelihood that King Eadred's will was overturned by his successor gives us a window into the political turbulence of the mid-tenth century. The sumptuous gold-lettered New Minster refoundation charter of 966 is both a beautiful object and a powerful piece of monastic propaganda; and another charter in the archive contains the famous vernacular account of the crimes of Wulfbald in King Aethelreds reign. With other texts illuminating the reigns and politics of other rulers, the archive offers a microcosm of late Anglo-Saxon history.
