Abstract

From 735 York lay at the centre of an archdiocese that was responsible for much of northern Britain, but churches and churchmen based in York played a particularly important role in the life of the city itself, and its surrounding region. This session will explore the practical work of the church in York in the early medieval period, considering the church’s role in the major life-events of its local population.
