Abstract

Many of the churches that border the western end of the Vale of Pickering in North Yorkshire show signs of having existed since the 7th or 8th century. Some of these churches, certainly, were originally monastic; others offer claims to have been so. While they have been studied individually, they have seldom been considered as a group. These two sessions will proposethat a number of them were affiliated, weigh the significance of such a confederation in relation to the religious life in York and other centres, and examine its legacy.
