medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture I don't know about medieval references, but priests are still buried head to the east - and even during his funeral service the coffin of my father (an Anglican priest) was placed so that his head was to the east - contrary to the way coffins are usually placed.
best wishes
