    St Cuthbert his cult and community to AD 1200 1989 Bonner Rollason and Stancliffe eds 467 pages plus platesThis is a series of papers presented at a conference in 1987 and they cover Cuthbert and all things pertaining to him very well It comes in Four partsSt Cuthbert the Lives and early cultLindisfarne and its ScriptoriumThe coffin and its treasuresSt Cuthbert's community at Chester le Street and DurhamThere are 31 count 'em papers within this volume They cover a wide range of topics with a lot concentrating on the physical aspects such as manuscripts silk coffin and other artistic gubbins As I've got marzipan that won't eat itself I naturally read only the ones that interested me and skipped those that didn't In a way I almost feel embarrassed about skipping so many and I probably haven't really had value for my money but in any compilation there will be some that don't tickle everyone's fancy There are untranslated uotes in Latin Old English and French which are a painThese are the ones that I readElements in the background to the life of St Cuthbert and his early cult – J Campbell 16 pagesThis is a wonderful paper with plenty of interesting elements to it It's the sort of thing you read and find yourself saying 'ah that's so obvious now that you mention it' The uotes are in Latin sans translation which is a pain but that aside it's a fun read Campbell points out that although Northumbria may have become a backwater after Nectansmere it wasn't laid tribute by its southern neighbours and remained independent The cultural achievements occurred at a time of apparent political turmoil and it's possible that high level skulduggery had a limited effect on the actual day to day functioning of the kingdom There's a lot in this but it's so tightly written that a full account of the 16 pages would probably run to a lot of words Cuthbert and the polarity between pastor and solitary C Stancliffe 23 pagesThis paper looks at the various Lives of Cuthbert and the motives and models behind them There's a nice little table that shows all of this at the end The different treatments given to Aidan relegated to obscurity but for Bede and Cuthbert lauded as the saint par excellence is looked into with the resulting idea being that Cuthbert was or could be made to be safely Roman instead of Ionan in ritesLindisfarne and the origins of the Cult of St Cuthbert Alan Thacker 19 pagesIn this paper Thacker looks as the rationale for the production of three Lives so soon after Cuthbert's death He concludes that it was the result of tensions within the Northumbrian church between the supporters of Wilfrid and those who weren't in his party Due to Wilfrid's unpopularity Cuthbert became a figure whom the Northumbrian 'establishment' chose to support Why did the community of St Cuthbert settle at Chester le Street E Cambridge 19 pagesThe short answer is that they probably already had an establishment within the Roman fort there and it was a Roman fort and so pretty safe Cambridge spends a lot of time discussing the church there carvings and estates owned by Lindisfarne He demonstrates the likely ownership of Chester le Street and this strengthens that side of the rationale for locating there Beyond that it was well positioned to manage their estates St Cuthbert at Chester le Street G Bonner 8 pagesThis is an enjoyable short paper that examines the history of the community during its sojourn there It contains the unimprovable line 'being a landowner affords little security in the presence of a neighbour who disputes one's title and carries a battle axe' St Cuthbert and Wessex the evidence of Cambridge Corpus Christi College MS183 by D Rollason 11 pagesI found this to be uite a narrow paper I enjoyed the general points made about how the community of St Cuthbert and the West Saxon kings used each other but the specific attempts to link that work with the south weren't particularly fascinating It was good to see the point made that the West Saxon bods favoured St Cuthbert over York The Sanctuary of St Cuthbert D Hall 11 pages This is a splendid paper that went in a different direction to what I was expecting Instead of tales of sanctuary breakers and divine retribution it goes into the distance from the frithstol that someone may claim sanctuary the fines levied in proportion to this and the methods of resolving issues here There is a short breakdown of who received parts of the fines for breaking the protection of the sanctuary Interestingly these fines appear to have varied with how close someone was to the frithstol At Hexham the outer boundary was a mile around the church itself and it seems possible that these outer boundaries of the divine were perhaps marked by crosses and the like
