This is not an area I know at all well, but might not a dedication to All 
Saints have something to do with the relics available to dedicate the 
altar (if, indeed, relics were always needed to dedicate an altar - does 
anyone know?)?  Reliquaries often contained the remains of more 
than one saint, and it is easy to imagine a venerable heap of mushed 
up bits of this and that not being completely identifiable.  What else 
could one do with such a holy mess?  
Curiously (and hopefully not irreverently),
