About this product
- DescriptionThe millennium of Edward the Confessor's birth presents an appropriate occasion for a full-scale, up-to-date reassessment of his life, reign and cult, a reappraisal which is provided in the essays here. After an introduction to the many views of Edward's life, and a reinterpretation of the development of his cult, the volume considers his childhood in England and its influence upon his later life; the time he spent in Normandy and the relationships that developed there; and, his later life, including an examination of the role played by Edith, his queen.There is also a particular focus upon Westminster Abbey, and the major new discoveries which have recently been made there. Incorporating both broad surveys and the fruits of detailed new work, this book will be essential reading for all those interested in late Saxon and Norman England. Contributors of this book include: Richard Mortimer, Simon Keynes, Elisabeth Van Houts, Stephen Baxter, Pauline Stafford, Eric Fernie, Warwick Rodwell, Richard Gem and Edina Bozoky.
