THE CULT OF KINGSHIP IN ANGLO-SAXON ENGLAND: The Transition from Paganism to Christianity

Manchester: Manchester University Press, 1999. Hardcover.

A fundamental element of the old cult was sacral kingship, and in this study Chaney examines the continuity from paganism to Christianity as it relates to kingship and the religious nature that permeated the institution in both old and new cults." 276 p.
