medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

In a message dated 14/02/2009 12:36:05 GMT Standard Time, [log in to unmask] writes:

Christopher Hohler was of the opinion that the effects of the allowance of
three gallons of beer a day were to be detected in manuscripts of the
'reform' period. [C.E. Hohler, "Some Service Books of the Later Saxon
Church", pp. 60-83 in D. Parsons (ed) Tenth-Century Studies: Essays in
Commemoration of the Millennium of the Council of Winchester and 'Regularis
Concordia (Chichester: Phillimore, 1975).]  Hohler's reference for the beer allowance is the Abingdon Chronicle, ed. J. Stevenson, Rolls Series 1858, v.1, p.346 & v.2, p.279.

 

So THAT was the cause of the "Tremulous Hand of Worcester"!!!
