Der dritte Band der Enzyklopädie geht den Wirkungen der Stiftungen auf vormoderne Gesellschaften nach, im lateinischen und orthodoxen Christentum, in islamischen Ländern, in Indien, sowie auf die Gemeinden der Juden in ihren jeweiligen andersgläubigen Mehrheitsgesellschaften. Diese Fragen werden in der bisherigen Forschung kaum gestellt; deshalb bietet der Band eine Sammlung verstreut vorliegender Beobachtungen, aber auch erhebliche Anregungen für künftige Forschungen. Im einzelnen geht es um die "soziale Position" und das "Geschlecht" der Akteure, um das Verhältnis von Stiftung und Raum im Sinne des spacial turn, um den Beitrag der Stiftungen zum gesellschaftlichen Wandel überhaupt, aber auch um Stiftungskritik und Stiftungsaufhebung sowie um interkulturelle Imitationen im Stiftungswesen. Wie die anderen beiden Bände bietet der dritte wichtige Aufschlüsse für die Sozial- und Kulturgeschichte "mittelalterlicher" Gesellschaften und den bisher auch international erstmaligen Versuch eines interkulturellen Phänomenvergleichs mit Beiträgen zu einer transkulturellen Synthese.

St Paul's Cathedral stood at the centre of religious life in medieval London. It was the mother church of the diocese, a principal landowner in the capital and surrounding countryside, and a theatre for the enactment of events of national importance. The cathedral was also a powerhouse of commemoration and intercession, where prayers and requiem masses were offered on a massive scale for the salvation of the living and the dead. This spiritual role of St Paul's Cathedral was carried out essentially by the numerous chantry priests working and living in its precinct. Chantries were pious foundations, through which donors, clerks or lay, male or female, endowed priests to celebrate intercessory masses for the benefit of their souls. At St Paul's Cathedral, they were first established in the late twelfth century and, until they were dissolved in 1548, they contributed greatly to the daily life of the cathedral. They enhanced the liturgical services offered by the cathedral, increased the number of the clerical members associated with it, and intensified relations between the cathedral and the city of London. Using the large body of material from the cathedral archives, this book investigates the chantries and their impacts on the life, services and clerical community of the cathedral, from their foundation in the early thirteenth century to the dissolution. It demonstrates the flexibility and adaptability of these pious foundations and the various contributions they made to medieval society; and sheds light on the men who played a role which, until the abolition of the chantries in 1548, was seen to be crucial to the spiritual well-being of medieval London.

In this original account of architecture in England between c.1150 and c.1250, Peter Draper explores how the assimilation of new ideas from France led to an English version of Gothic architecture that was quite distinct from Gothic expression elsewhere. The author considers the great cathedrals of England (Canterbury, Wells, Salisbury, Lincoln, Ely, York, Durham, and others) as well as parish churches and secular buildings, to examine the complex interrelations between architecture and its social and political functions. Architecture was an expression of identity, Draper finds, and the unique Gothic that developed in England was one of a number of manifestations of an emerging sense of national identity. The book inquires into such topics as the role of patrons, the relationships between patrons and architects, and the wide variety of factors that contributed to the process of creating a building. With 250 illustrations, including more than 50 in color, this book offers new ways of seeing and thinking about some of England’s greatest and best-loved architecture.

Based on her Doctoral research, Katherine Giles's study focuses on the physical structure and spatial arrangement of medieval guildhalls. A programme of EDM and hand survey, as well as photogaphic recording was applied to three guildhalls in York (Trinity Hall, St John the Baptist's Hall and St Anthony's Hall), and the author's theoretical and methodological approaches are considered with regard to these case studies and to the study of guildhalls in general.

Archaeological work at 1 Poultry includes analysis of 280 burials associated with the medieval church of St Benet Sherehog and a post-Great Fire burial ground on the same location. Post-medieval coffins and coffin furniture indicate that the burial population is primarily late, with a fifth dated to before the Great Fire, although none were associated with the primary phase of the church. The parish of St Benet Sherehog pre- and post-Fire is considered in terms of the documented population, occupations and wealth, and health and mortality. This is followed by evidence for the medieval church of St Benet and the religious life of the parish. 'Death and commemoration' looks at historical and archaeological evidence for funerals and burial practices. A detailed osteological account of the 17th- to 19th-century burial sample includes comparison with contemporary London cemetery populations.

Staffing medieval cathedrals was always a problem. Some English cathedrals introduced monks, but those at Chichester, Exeter, Hereford, Lichfield, Lincoln, St. Paul's London, Salisbury, Wells and York were all in the hands of secular canons. These senior priests were rarely present, however, so such cathedrals were actually staffed by vicars, who took the canons' places in services. This book is concerned with these vicars; their history, their buildings and their archaeology. From their first appearance in the 12th century, the vicars' morals and behaviour were matters for concern, and Deans struggled to impose discipline. Documentary records of these struggles have survived well and, as presented here, they represent a major source for historians of the medieval city and Church. Eventually all English Cathedral vicars were subjected to quasi-monastic discipline and were housed in carefully designed and regulated colleges. Several of these important complexes have survived and, for the first time, all nine colleges are studied here, using documents, survey work and excavation. An extraordinary interdisciplinary resource is revealed. An initial section introduces the vicars choral, explaining their role within the English and European Church and exploring their central role in medieval liturgy and music-making. Detailed studies of the history, architectural history and archaeology of each of the nine English colleges are then followed by in-depth study of the York college, using the full range of documentary, architectural and archaeological resources to illustrate the life and times of this important group of priests.
