medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

I think (I am hesitant on this point, because my knowledge derives from Pafaff's Liturgy in Medieval England...) that nothing like a definitive list of feasts in England exists before the second Council of Clovesho in 747.

We know that Benedict Biscop brought back to England the "chant for  the liturgical year as it was sung in Rome" around 680. My question  is not about the singing, but about what the liturgical year would have looked like at that time. What were the main feasts that would have been celebrated in Rome? In England, if different?  What about art? Do we have any idea of the decoration of churches (in particular, statues or murals of saints or biblical episodes) at this time?

Curiously enough I have recently been scanning an image of this in the 12thC glass in the central west fa├žade window at Chartres, devoted to the Childhood and Life of Christ.
