not yet rated|write a review
The charters from the archive of St Augustine's Abbey, many very early indeed, provide crucial evidence about the history of the Anglo-Saxon church in Kent and the development of the documentary process. A high proportion of the thirty-nine pre-Conquest charters which are edited in thisvolume, together with fourteen from another early foundation at Minster-in-Thanet, date from the seventh and eighth centuries. The editor's Introduction sets the documents in their historical and diplomatic contexts and analyses the extent and nature of the contamination by later medieval scholars of the abbey. A detailed commentary is also provided on each text and important topics such as lost charters, the sequence ofabbots, Kentish Kings and so on are discussed in separate appendices. This is the largest and most important collection to be published in the Anglo-Saxon Charters series.

Editorial Reviews

`meticulous edition ... Kelly's scholarly detective work will place subsequent studies of the St Augustine and Minster-in-Thanet charters on a new footing. As in previous editions in this series there are full discussions of each charter which not only consider problems such as authenticityand date, but also seek to identify individuals and plaes included in them. There is a wealth of knowledge and good judgement in these discussions which can only add to our admiration for Kelly's work.'Barbara Yorke, King Alfred's College, Winchester, Journal of Ecclesiastical History, Vol 47, No. 5 - Oct 96
