(p.1) Introduction
Scribes and Scholars at Salisbury Cathedral c. 1075–c. 1125

Teresa Webber

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about the books and the scholars and scribes of Salisbury Cathedral during the late 11th and early 12th centuries. This book aims to approach the early history of the Salisbury canons from a different angle using meagre documentary remains. It draws upon the evidence offered by all aspects of the manuscript books in order to gain an insight into the canons' intellectual and spiritual interests, attitudes, and concerns, and attempts to situate them within the context of intellectual life in England during this period.

Keywords:   Salisbury Cathedral, scholars, scribes, canons, intellectual interest, spiritual interest, England
